Rattigan reassessed


It is 100 years since the birth of one of the most influential playwrights of the 20th century, Terence Rattigan.

To mark the anniversary there are events taking place across the country.

Rattigan was very successful until the mid-1950s, when he fell spectacularly out of fashion until his death in 1977.

The BBC's arts correspondent Rebecca Jones has been finding out if Rattigan is now back for good.
