The first in a series of three plays by one of TV's top writers - Alan Plater, Norman Rodway stars as Murphy, 'a humble pen-pusher in a cardboard box factory,' who tries to brighten his life with home movies, tape-recording, and home-made wine. But success can come out of failure...
"This trilogy is without question the most ambitious and the best thing that Mr Plater has done." (Keith Dewhurst - Guardian)

In this Personal Cinema programme Jack Lemmon, film star, Academy Award winner, and production executive, talks to Michael Aspel about his stage and screen career and the prospects of his first directorial assignment. He also chooses scenes from some of his favourite films including Robert Donat's moment of triumph in The Magic Box.
'The highest compliment one can pay an actor... is to say that having seen him in a particular part it would be impossible to imagine anyone else playing that part. And so often I felt that about Robert Donat.'
'I was going to save the entire Broadway theatre, but for some reason they wouldn't let me do it.'
