imagine..., Summer 2004 Episode 6 of 6

Duration: 51 minutes

Marking the publication of Simon Gray's latest book, The Smoking Diaries, Alan Yentob draws a rare insight into one of Britain's foremost playwrights, author of many West End hits, but best know for his work with Harold Pinter and as writer of the notorious Cell Mates. This intimate tribute gives a darkly entertaining account of his childhood experiences and very personal views on addictions to smoking and alcohol.
