Framed on BBC1

Written by Chris Routledge, 13th August 2009

An adaptation of Framed by local author, screenwriter, and friend of The Reader Organisation Frank Cottrell Boyce will be shown on BBC 1 on Sunday 30th August.


Set almost entirely in Wales, the drama tells the story of 10-year-old Dylan Hughes and his family's small petrol station; when his father leaves the family, it coincides with the arrival of a contingent from the National Portrait Gallery in London, who have brought paintings to Wales for safe-keeping after the gallery was flooded. The novel was inspired by the real-life practice during the Second World War of keeping paintings in Welsh mines.



Framed was directed by Andy De Emmony, and stars Trevor Eve and Eve Myles.
