New. Classical actor Nicholas Craig explores how best to portray the rigours of Edwardian behaviour.
Nicholas Craig, Nigel Planer's spoof luvvie, revives his occasional series of acting masterclasses. Planer skips gaily between affection and cruelty in his mockery of period drama, as Craig - star of Kidneys on the Sideboard - covers such tenets of Edwardian acting as smoking, discombobulation and playing David Lloyd George.
The clips are weepingly funny, but bigger laughs come from Craig's indiscreet links, with their poorly concealed avarice and one-upmanship. This is one of the funniest comedies on the box: silly but clever, breezy but assiduously crafted. (Jack Seale)
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
