Alan Plater RIP

Sorry to hear that Alan Plater has died. He wrote so many brilliant TV scripts: just look at the list. I even remember Close the Coalhouse Door from way back. Hard to pick a favourite but it might be the funny, eccentric, confusing and of course *starring James Bolam*, The Beiderbecke Affair. Here’s a sample.

Edit: The IMDb link won't work at the moment, although it was fine just now. Just a glitch, I hope.
