Peter Morgan is a modern-day History Man, a television dramatist who has already chronicled Henry VIII, Colditz and, in The Deal, the Blair-Brown leadership pact. Over the next couple of months, Morgan will have four more of his dramas on stage or screen and, again, all have the thread of history running through them. Three, set in the 1970s, are about larger-than-life characters from that decade, while the fourth depicts that momentous week in 1997 following the death of Princess Diana.
