'The Curse of Steptoe' - BBC Radio 4's 'Front Row'

Postby The Pixel Surgeon » Sat Mar 15, 2008 3:46 am

This week’s edition ( Friday 14/3/08 ) of BBC Radio 4's ‘Front Row’, had a shortish section on the forthcoming drama season on BBC Four; ‘The Curse of Comedy’, and 'The Curse of Steptoe' obviously had a mention... and which went into the reasons for the content/slant of each of the four dramas. Sounds to me, as indeed I already knew, that these dramas will be focusing on the not so funny sides of all those concerned/involved/featured, that we care and love so dearly...

So..., anyone looking to have a laugh, during the broadcast of any of these dramas, will be waiting a long time, and thus be highly disappointed... As this (these) will be, quite literally, a behind the scenes look, at the lives of all those involved...

For me, the mystique of how things are done/seen, from the other side of the camera, may well disappear forever - once witnessed, from this other perspective. So, before you watch, make sure you are ready, for what’s to come... as all those illusions you had/have, may be banished in an instant, and you’ll start to look at things, you once very much enjoyed, quite differently – even if you don’t really end up, believing any of it...!

(why they don’t allow this service through Windows Media Player, I’ll never know, as we all have this on our systems, by default)
