TV 018: Blott On The Landscape - Dave Mackay

Blott On The Landscape was dramatised in 1985, some ten years after the publication of Tom Sharpe's novel of the same name.

The plot centres around the controversial construction of a motorway through a rural gorge upon which is built a stately home - Handyman Hall.

For: Lord Lynchwood (George Cole)
Against: Lady Lynchwood (Geraldine James) and their gardener Blott (David Suchet)

Being a Tom Sharpe adaptation, the emphasis is on outlandish fun and hilarious farce. The theme suits the general vibe of the story and is performed by Dave Mackay.

Comments and feedback are welcome.
