Television Centre Room 5064

Writer: Adrian Riglesford


As the Eighties draw to a close, the BBC is in turmoil. The old ways of making TV are dying fast and with it, 30 years of accrued knowledge as new broom John Birt and Producer Choice begins to sweep all in its' wake.

At the heart of this fast brewing maelstrom is Room 5064, home to producers Innes Lloyd and Kenith Trodd, together with writers Dennis Potter and Alan Bennett who the BBC have contrived to throw together. Join us for this sharply drawn battle of philosophy and wits, set against the backdrop of Thatcherism and the setting of the sun on the traditional BBC way.

It's the end, but has the moment been prepared for?
