    Dennis Potter's 'The Singing Detective' is being re-run on Beeb 4 starting this Thursday evening. Not for the easily offended but classic stuff nonetheless, and highly controversial in its day. If you can't cope with complex multi-layered narrative or near the knuckle subject matter don't bother.

    If you're too young to have ever seen it, give it a look and see what vintage TV Drama looks like.

    It's worth it just for the teacher alone. Those were the days ;-)

    On the other hand, in Pennies from Heaven also by Dennis Potter, the teacher was sacked because one of the governors knew a doctor who knew she was pregnant. Not such good days.
