Dennis Potter (17 May 1935 – 7 June 1994)


Dennis Potter talking to Melvin Bragg in 1994 about Television and the way in which it was going (and has gone).

(The pressure) ”to maximise your audience at any given point is the very antithesis of discovering something you didn’t know. It’s the very antithesis of the kind of broadcasting and television which was such a glory in British life.”

It is, I feel linked to Alan Moores statement on art and artists and also to Robert Anton Wilsons on the Joy of art
