Orson Welles in Norwich – Urban Myths

Now available on Sky on demand and NOW TV.

TX- 28th October 2020 (Sky Arts –  Freeview Ch 11)

I’ve written an episode of Urban Myths (Series 4) for SKY ARTS.


Robbie Coltrane as Orson Welles

It’s about the time Orson Welles presented “Great Mysteries” for Anglia TV in the early 1970s.

Orson was working on his experimental film “F for Fake” in Europe, but was out of money and doing what he could to raise funds – commercials, presenting jobs…  This brought him to Norwich.

Orson Welles in Norwich is a comedy drama – it stars Robbie Coltrane as Orson Welles, and co-stars Saoirse Monica Jackson (Derry Girls) Sean Biggerstaff (Harry Potter) Alice McMillan, Apphia Campbell, and Craig Ferguson.

Directed by Richard Curson Smith

Producer- Jeremy Campbell

Orson Welles In Norwich is made by Absinthe Entertainment.
