Unprecedented BBC

Post by Simon36 »

Does anyone know what happened to this series? It was billed as being 12 short plays about lockdown (a la ITV’s Isolation Stories). The Radio Times gave it very little coverage, billed six of them and said three more would be available online (which only makes nine...)

My set top box had it on series link but captured four double bills with a fifth on Iplayer only. What happened to the others! What a fiasco!

The Stage and the Guardian gave the first couple excellent reviews, so it’s all a bit odd...

Aren't the five episodes the whole series?

The first "episode" was in fact three of the plays - each being about 10 minutes long.

I’m very grateful for that. It was a bit of a mess to decipher!
