During the 1980s, the single-play strand Dramarama ignited a prolific period in broadcasting for children's television,which many believe hasn't been replicated since. Dramarama ran for seven years (1983-1989), producing 90 programmes, split between eight seasons. It spanned every genre imaginable; with spooky tales that you watched from behind the sofa to comedic capers that had you crying with laughter. The season this April at BFI Southbank gives a selection of the unique strand that was Dramarama, along with a few of its rivals and some hard-hitting episodes from other drama series of the time. The BFI is delighted to welcome special guests Erkan Mustafa and Lee Macdonald to introduce the screening of Dramarama: School Days and share their memories of the 80s with you.
