Notes

General
Playwright Dennis Potter wrote scripts for TW3 and with David Nathan penned a sketch entitled ‘The Hey Nonny Nude Show’ about a striptease club trying to get in on the Shakespeare quatercentenery bandwagon. The transmission date on which this sketch appeared in not known, and it is likely that the programme itself has not survived.
