Victoria Sadler

A tough gritty drama about life for a single mother in the rough area of South Boston may not be the kind of production you'd expect to see on a London stage, let alone with Imelda Staunton in it, but Good People is such a phenomenally superb production that it stands out for all the right reasons.

Des Freedman

The BBC's decision to close its sole youth-focused TV channel, BBC Three, is both depressing and divisive. Depressing because it represents yet another attack on a generation that is already facing the sharp end of austerity policies with high youth unemployment, welfare cuts, the prospect of huge debts for those who choose to go to university and the lack of affordable housing which will now prevent millions of young people from leaving the family home.

Bonnie Greer | Posted 04.05.2014 | UK Entertainment
Bonnie Greer
