  Pinter at the BBC on DVD [read more]
  Pause for thought
  Harold Pinter (1930-2008) was one of the most important and influential British playwrights of the last century. While best known for his work for the stage, this collection celebrates Pinter's significant contribution to television.

Pinter at the BBC is a 5-disc DVD box set containing 10 plays made for the BBC between 1965 and 1988, all previously unavailable on DVD. Released by the BFI on 28 January 2019, the plays are accompanied by a range of special features and a 40-page illustrated booklet with new writing.

Harold Pinter's work for the screen shares many of the qualities of his work for the stage, from a fascination with the private roots of power and an abiding preoccupation with memory, to a belief in the agency of women. He was quite simply a great writer, whose work admits us to the dark room of his imagination.

Highlights of the collection include Tea Party (1965), Old Times (1975) and 1987's The Birthday Party which sees a rare example of Pinter acting within his own work. The Hothouse (1982) and Mountain Language (1988) were both written and directed by Pinter.

A dazzling array of British acting talent is on display here including Michael Gambon, Julie Walters, Leo McKern, Vivien Merchant, John Le Mesurier and Miranda Richardson.
