Dennis Potter 1993 MacTaggart lecture Edinburgh

eloquent cutting concise amusing and amazing-- this is a superb speech at the International Television Festival, by a master of language and thought - as relevant today as it was then -- you will need to have a fine bottle open and have space, and be in 'receive mode' -- it is over an hour long, but not a word is wasted. His gloved clenched fist of fairness and bile whose fingers so often pointed fearlessly inwards as well as at others, is a fitting memory for fight and freedom of expression..enjoy
