Considered one of the most important figures in the history of British television, Dennis Potter (The Singing Detective, Pennies from Heaven) created numerous widely-acclaimed television dramas. Powerful and often controversial, his groundbreaking works continue to enthrall audiences worldwide. Dennis Potter: 3 To Remember showcases three exquisite but rarely-seen teleplays shot on location and specifically produced for London Weekend Television.
Blade on the Feather (Original UK Broadcast: 10/19/80)
Jason (Donald Pleasence), a reclusive author, is visited by Daniel (Tom Conti), a young admirer, but both men are more than they claim to be. After Daniel seduces Jason's daughter, dark secrets are unearthed.
Rain on the Roof (Original UK Broadcast: 10/26/80)
Disturbed by her husband's infidelity, Janet (Cheryl Campbell) flirts with her simple reading student Billy (Ewan Stewart). Unfortunately, her advances trigger aggressive behavior in Billy, putting her and her husband in danger.
Cream in my Coffee (Original UK Broadcast: 11/2/80)
Past and present intertwine between the early 1930s - where a young couple Bernard (Peter Chelsom) and June (Shelagh McLeod) are having a pre-marital fling, and the present - where the same couple, now elderly (played by Lionel Jeffries and Peggy Ashcroft), revisit the Grand Hotel in Eastbourne, the scene of their blossoming romance.
Also Includes: Dennis Potter: The Last Interview
Broadcast in April 1994, this Channel 4 television special was recorded only three months prior to Potter's death and features the dramatist candidly discussing his life and career with interviewer Melvyn Bragg.

I am a huge fan of British TV and films. I wanted so much to like this set of DVDs but alas, for me the films had long, tedious scenes which put me to sleep midway through. Read morePublished on June 5, 2010 by J Frances
I purchased this set as a gift for a Dennis Potter fan who reported that he enjoyed it; I have not watched the DVDs myself.Published on February 28, 2010 by Quidnunc
