A contrasting double bill of mid-1970s political dramas from the pioneering ITV company Granada. Arthur Hopcraft’s gritty script, about a Labour politician caught between his Westminster ambitions and the demands of his northern constituency, inspired a subsequent TV series.

Late Night Theatre. Granada 1973
Dir Colin Cant
With Roland Curram, Weston Gavin, Zoë Wanamaker
30min

An exuberant and wildly inventive satire on the Apollo Space Programme, written by David Edgar, in which two astronauts ‘drop in’ on an ordinary English family.
