Period drama is something the British have *always* excelled at … in both television and film. Whether DOWNTON ABBEY or THE KING’S SPEECH, audiences are lapping it up more than ever.
But despite notable success, period drama can be expensive, frustrating producers. Writers are becoming disillusioned with period drama, believing it to have become somewhat of a cliché.
Yet a good period drama does not have to be a cliché and doesn’t have to be expensive either! There are new ways of telling stories on a budget, as demonstrated by Roland Moore’s LAND GIRLS. Roland will be joined by fellow period drama writers Chris Hill, Mark Pallis and Kevin Hood who will be sharing the tricks of the trade.
