One of Britain's greatest dramatists, the award-winning playwright Jack Rosenthal created some of the most critically-acclaimed and popular single plays of the last forty years. Instantly recognisable by their warmth and humour, Rosenthal's scripts were always popular with the viewing public and were invariably big ratings winners. Alongside single plays he also honed his craft on a diverse range of television shows - from Coronation Street (for which he was one of the key writers in the 1960s) to highly-acclaimed comedy and drama shows such as The Dustbinmen, London's Burning and The Lovers (all of which he also created). The contents of this set showcase the diversity and charm of Rosenthal's work, with many of these shows not seen since their original transmission.
