Thanks Iain for sharing the link to the Shelagh Delaney Monitor film.  Of all of Ken's early Monitor films (prior to Elgar) that I have seen this is my favorite.  Very imaginarily shot and edited for what was essentially an interview.  Thanks again.

A playwright she gained fame with her play A Taste of Honey.  Russell regular Murray Melvin appeared in the premiere production as well as Tony Richardson's film.  Lindsay Anderson also filmed one of her stories as The White Bus
