BBC 2002
Dir Christopher Morahan
With Mark Rice-Oxley, Jamie Lee, Ben Caplan, Daisy Haggard

Pinter’s only novel gives a vivid picture of life amongst Hackney intellectuals in the 1950s, and explores the politics of friendship. A young actor and an angst-ridden City worker fight over a girl, watched by a disturbed mutual chum. One of Pinter’s most formative, unjustly neglected early works is adapted by Kerry Crabbe.

Plus animated sketch Trouble in the Works (1969. Dir Gerald Potterton. 4min).
