Documentary on playwright John Osborne. With his 1956 play, 'Look Back in Anger', British dramatist Osborne renewed the emotional and rhetorical intensity of English theatre. Unfortunately, misunderstanding and controversy surrounded most of his career. This programme reconstructs Osborne's life and artistic journey, using rarely seen archival films and firsthand accounts from the author's inner circle of friends and collaborators.
