The South Bank Show

TV Times - - Wednesday -

Any­one con­sid­er­ing a ca­reer writ­ing for TV should watch this South Bank Show episode, be­cause Melvyn Bragg’s in­ter­vie­wee is Sally Wain­wright. She’s one of the most suc­cess­ful TV writ­ers of the mo­ment, with cred­its in­clud­ing Un­for­given, Scott & Bai­ley, Last Tango in Hal­i­fax and Happy Val­ley. Sally re­veals how she got started, how writ­ing for Coro­na­tion Street for five years taught her dis­ci­pline and how im­por­tant it is to keep the au­di­ence en­ter­tained, while at the same time mak­ing sure that the drama is firmly grounded in re­al­ity. Warn­ing: watch­ing clips of her shows will make you want to im­me­di­ately re-watch the whole se­ries!
