BBC4 will not screen a planned re-run of Dennis Potter's legendary tv drama THE SINGING DETECTIVE - because the Beeb refuses to pay a difference of 5000 pounds asked by Potter's estate   Undecided



5000 pounds would not, in fact, pay for the creation of even 5 broadcast minutes of tv drama these days.

But the BBC has always pooped liberally on its own talents - viz the way they have rebroadcast pieces by Harold Pinter (not).
