An adaptation of Framed by Macmillan Children’s author Frank Cottrell Boyce is to be broadcast on BBC1 this August Bank Holiday, with Trevor Eve and Eve Myles to star.
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, who has previously directed “Filth: The Mary Whitehouse Story” and “God On Trial”; the producer is Richard Burrell and the executive producer Jessica Pope.
New information says that “Framed” will be broadcast as a primetime feature-length dramatisation on BBC1 on Monday 31st August. Apparently there was a change in BBC One’s scheduling or the date was wrong from TheBookseller.com.
This info comes from TheBookseller.com. Earlier reports had speculated that it wouldn’t come out until Christmas of this year, so this is really great news!
