    It has taken me some time just to find the name of this TV drama first aired in 1977 starring Geraldine James. She played a deaf girl whose life descended into prostitution.

    Does anyone remember this. Does anyone know if this was ever released on DVD, or even where I might find a copy in any format?

    Hi,
    I remember it also. But with regard to video release, or subsequent DVD, I cannot help you. However, if it was made by the BBC, as I think it was, they might be able to help you. The only problem there is that the BBC do not seem these days, as easy to communicate with, as they were in the past. I wish you success.

    Alan French,

    Dummy was an ATV Production for Independent Television, back in the days of proper regional TV. This excellent slice of drama is long overdue a DVD release...

    LOL ALan - that wasn't my intention...just to hold out the flimsiest hope that as it's an ATV job, somewhere along the line Network might do their magic. BBC don't seem too interested in their more obscure archive titles at all.
