Saturday Night And Sunday Morning

As the sun goes down, the makeup goes on and Britain prepares for a night on the town; or perhaps your idea of good Saturday night fun is feet up in front of Casualty and the National Lottery.

From the debris of a night in A&E, to the early worshippers amongst the aisles of a supermarket church service and a Sunday morning wrestling club, Sara Parker traces the sometimes unsteady path in pursuit of pleasure that is the British Saturday night, and the bright new Sunday morning that unerringly follows.

Robert Rigby's dramatisation of Alan Sillitoe's seething novel set in 1958 Nottingham - part of Radio 4's celebration of British New Wave film and cinema,.

'Angry young man' Arthur Seaton rages against the boredom of his factory machinist job and home life with 'dead from the neck up' parents.

Determined to avoid a similar slide into domestic drudgery, Arthur is a risk-taking womaniser, enduring each tedious week in the knowledge that the weekend's thrills are to come. But Arthur takes a risk too far, inflicting life-shattering consequences on those around him.
