BBC Sunday-Night Play
The series often included versions of modern theatrical successes, but original work appeared in the slot too. David Mercer's A Suitable Case for Treatment (1962) was later adapted as the feature film Morgan – A Suitable Case for Treatment (1966), while Madhouse on Castle Street (1963) starred the then little known Bob Dylan.
The series ended in 1963. Out of a run of 138 episodes, only 15 are believed to survive (See Wiping).
