Wed 30 Mar, 6.30PMGetting On

BAFTA MASTERCLASS:

Getting On - with writer-stars Vicki Pepperdine & Joanna Scanlan

Ward B4 is a world of slips, trips and hips, where health care is at its least glamorous.

Co-written by its three leads (Jo Brand, Vicki Pepperdine and Joanna Scanlan), and directed by ScreenLit 2010 guest Peter Capaldi, Getting On is a scalpel-sharp sitcom where broad humour is juxtaposed with nuanced moments of quiet heartbreak.

We are pleased to welcome Vicki Pepperdine and Joanna Scanlan to discuss writing and acting in the acclaimed series. The discussion will be hosted by Briony Hanson, director of The Script Factory, and illustrated with clips.

NEWS FLASH! Congratulations to Jo Brand, Vicki Pepperdine and Joanna Scanlan who have won the RTS (Royal Television Society) Award for 'Writer - Comedy'. Here's what the judges said: "“Despite tackling the grim subjects of old age and terminal illness, the writers have come up with a profound, poignant and bleakly funny series that elicits guilty laughs and packs a powerful emotional punch.”

With thanks to Vera Productions and the BBC.
