The wife of a missing explorer relives their life through the writing of her husband's biography. A Czech man traumatised by recent events in his homeland finds a ray of hope when he meets a young woman in London. A shy ornithologist, safely hidden behind his field-glasses, watches the girl opposite and almost forgets the hurt of being a little man. These and other scenarios form a series of original and contemporary dramas based on a timelessly compelling theme. Love Story, an anthology of plays produced in the golden age of television drama, represents the pooling of an extraordinary range of talent. Among the contributing writers are Roman Polanski, Stan Barstow, Trevor Preston, Brian Clemens, Alfred Shaughnessy and Jeremy Paul; Gerald Harper, Dudley Moore, Marius Goring, Hannah Gordon, John Gregson, Alexis Kanner, Alfred Burke, Brian Blessed, Gareth Thomas and Patrick Macnee feature among the many distinguished performers appearing in this first volume which collects eight plays originally screened between 1963 and 1973.
