Dancing on the Edge 'punishing'

Screenwriter and director Stephen Poliakoff and actress Jacqueline Bisset have talked of the punishing shooting of new drama Dancing on the Edge.

However, the nature of the period piece on the rise of jazz in interwar Britain often compensated for any ardour, added Poliakoff, with Bisset explaining she was drawn to the production by the power of Poliakoff's script.

Watch Dancing on the Edge on BBC Two at 2100 from Monday 4 February 2013
