No script, no film - should writers get more credit?

We can all name famous film directors - from Ridley Scott to Pedro Almodovar - but who knows the names of any screenwriters?

A group of writers think it is time to put that right.

Jeremy Paxman is joined by screenwriter Jeremy Brock and director Stephen Frears to debate if film writers should get more credit.

Broadcast on Wednesday 22 September 2010.
