Miscellaneous Radio, Television, Film and Theatre scripts

Scope and Content

Radio, television, theatre and film scripts (originals and photocopies).

Administrative / Biographical History

Malcolm Chapman collected British comedy scripts, principally from the 1950s and 1960s. Many of these are photocopies, but there are also many originals in this part of the collection.


The scripts are arranged by programme, and within that by series and then by episode number, as annotated in their original use. This may be the order in which they were recorded or in accordance with the rehearsal schedule, rather than the order in which they were broadcast.
