Description

The Beiderbecke Affair

This 1980s drama lives on in the hearts of everyone who watched James Bolam and Barbara Flynn - and everyone who heard its famous jazz music and this talk discusses how Birmingham continued the Beiderbecke saga into the 2000s.

William Gallagher, friend of Alan Plater and author of the British Film Institute's "BFI TV Classics: The Beiderbecke Affair", talks about the series and its characters and also gives tips for writing your first non-fiction book.
