ITV Play of the Week

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ITV Play of the Week is a 90-minute UK television anthology series produced by a variety of companies including Granada Television, Associated-Rediffusion, ATV and Anglia Television. From 1956 to 1966 approximately 500 episodes aired on ITV. The first production was Ten Minute Alibi, produced by Associated-Rediffusion on 14 May 1956[1] while the earliest to survive is There Was a Young Lady, transmitted on 23 July 1956 and was telerecorded (film recorded).[2] The first production not to be transmitted live was Henrik Ibsen's The Wild Duck[3] which was also film recorded. The first to be pre-recorded on videotape was Mary Broome, a Granada production broadcast on 3 September 1958.[4] Subsequently, only one play was transmitted live, Associated-Rediffusion's Search Party on 26 July 1960.[5] The recording of The Liberty Man, a Granada production broadcast on 1 October 1958, contains the original advertisements during the first commercial break.[6] The Violent Years was networked from Anglia on its opening night, 27 October 1959, and exists at the University of East Anglia.[7]
