PlumPlum
ABC In Development | Drama

Plum follows Peter 'The Plum' Lum, a 49-year-old national football treasure who lives with his son Gavin and girlfriend Charmaine in Cronulla. It looks like Plum is living the dream until he discovers he has a brain disorder as result of the hundreds of head knocks and concussions he suffered on the field. The new diagnosis doesn't receive its intended effect, as Plum would sooner hide, run and head to the pub for drinks with the boys and pretend everything is peaches. But hiding from the truth isn't easy when your ex-wife cares too much and your son comes to realise the father he worships is falling off his mantle and the game they love might be to blame.

Rating: 4.1/5

"Press" is set in the world of newspapers - its past riven by hacking scandals, its present at the mercy of the digital age and the 24 hour news cycle, its future uncertain.Press is written by Mike Bartlett, creator of Doctor Foster and winner of two 2015 Olivier Awards for different plays, including the critically acclaimed King Charles III. Press will be produced by three-time BAFTA winner Nigel Stafford-Clark.Writer Mike Bartlett says: "From exposing political corruption to splashing on celebrity scandal, editors and journalists have enormous influence over us, yet recent events have shown there's high-stakes and life-changing drama going on in the news organisations themselves. I'm hugely excited to be working with the BBC to make Press, a behind-the-scenes story about a group of diverse and troubled people who shape the stories and headlines we read every day."


Howzat! Kerry Packer's WarHowzat! Kerry Packer's War
Nine, 2012 Cancelled/Ended | Drama, Sports, Mini-Series
Rating: 5/5

Howzat! Kerry Packer's War is how legendary media mogul Kerry Packer fought a cricket war by secretly signing up 50 of the world's greatest players to form a breakaway tournament. Packer took on the Australian Cricket Board and MCCC in a war over TV rights and threw the cricket world into turmoil by creating 'World Series Cricket'. He knew the players, who had been underpaid for years, were on the point of rebellion against the cricket authorities. His rebel games clashed head-on with official test matches, and the war was on. Polishing an idea by John Cornell, Packer fought a bitter two-year battle against the cricket establishment doing its best to protect the hundred-year legacy of pride in the traditional nature of the poorly paid game. The result changed cricket forever.
