Writing the Century: The Hanleys
Dramatised by Lizzie Nunnery.
The series which explores the 20th century through the diaries and correspondence of real people.
From their rural cottage in Llanfechain, North Wales, the writer James Hanley and his wife Timmie, write almost weekly to their son Liam as he attends school, then National Service in Malta, before moving to London and becoming a journalist then a painter.
James is finally persuaded to leave Llanfechain, but not for the bustle of London that Timmie so desires. The change of scene soon comes under fire from James when he can't write, but the situation is rapidly taken out of their hands.
