Here’s a look back at Play for Today - a series of single dramas broadcast by the BBC between 1970 and 1984.

These were years of crisis, a time when the consensus politics of Britain’s postwar world had begun to unravel.

The long-running series reflected and responded to all of this and more in 300 dramas, shown in primetime on BBC One to audiences numbered in millions.

Many of the best actors, writers and directors of the time contributed to the series, with some of the best-remembered broadcasts being Mike Leigh’s Abigail’s Party (above), Dennis Potter’s Blue Remembered Hills and the strange fantasy, Penda’s Fen, written by Alan Rudkin and directed by Alan Clarke.
