There's some really nuggets of gold on the BBCiplayer at the minute, including this fantastic version of Joe Penhall's brilliant Blue/Orange which first premiered at the National in 2000.

I really like Penhall's ear for dialogue and his sensibility to creating the well made play. There's real craft here in this story of a young black schizophrenic and his relationship with two psychiatric nurses. He's without doubt one of the finest chroniclers of of England in the new early 21st century. Please have a look.
