  1. Sorry to hear about Alan Plater's death.
    The Beiderbecke collection was classic stuff and rang a special note with me as I was a student in Leeds around the time when the series were filmed, with Leeds as a back drop.
    In more recent times I enjoyed his collaborations with Alan Barnes on 'the Seven Ages of British Jazz' and 'Songs For Unsung Heroes' where Alan acted as narrator. I know the two Alans also recently wrote a musical together .
