Jack Rosenthal's Last Act

If you're near a radio, tune in to Radio 4 at 11.30 today for the first part of screenwriter Jack Rosenthal's memoirs, adapted by his daughter Amy. If you miss, it you can Listen Again at your leisure.

In The Times you can read why Maureen Lipman found directing the production a cathartic experience.
"Jack had no idea how loved or valued he was and it’s a shame that the full extent of people’s regard for you sometimes only emerges when you are dead. He wrote with so much honesty and humour and insight into ordinary people’s lives. Now, whenever we perform the autobiography in public, it’s always packed.”
