BBC 2 planning 'event drama'

By Matthew Hemley for The Stage
New BBC2 controller Janice Hadlow has revealed she plans to make original drama “the major event of the week” on the channel and draw inspiration from its previous successes including literary adaptations and series such as Our Friends in the North.

Speaking exclusively to The Stage, Hadlow, who was previously controller of BBC4 and replaced Roly Keating as head of BBC2 at the end of last year, said she was looking for dramas that audiences know “no one else is going to do”.
Let's hope she heeds the words of Guy Hibbert (whose work she praises), and allows writers to write without interference.
