In the section above, written when the site was first launched, the point was made that the BBC now only broadcast 90 minute dramas if they are Agatha Christie adaptations or “High Brow” social dramas. During November and December 2010 we have been treated to three 90 minute special dramas :
And then there were none Agatha Christie (now available to buy)
The Gambler Dostoevsky
The Caretaker Harold Pinter
While these broadcasts are most welcome, why can’t Radio 4 take the gamble and give us something original and new.
