Melvyn Bragg: Wig­ton to Westminster BBC2, 9.15pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

He’s worked on nearly 750 episodes of the South Bank Show, so it’s fair to say that writer and broad­caster Melvyn Bragg is no stranger to arts-based doc­u­men­taries. That only makes it all the more sur­pris­ing that no one has ever made a film about his own ex­tra­or­di­nary life and ca­reer. Luck­ily, Baftaw­in­ning pro­ducer and di­rec­tor Olivia Licht­en­stein is putting that right with this pro­gramme, which charts some of Bragg’s ca­reer high­lights, from his early days in ra­dio to Dennis Pot­ter’s poignant fi­nal in­ter­view.
