    Hi, I am looking for any TV programmes about George Orwell. I know the BBC made one with Chris Lanham playing him and another was made about him meeting H.G. Wells. I believe however at least another couple of programmes were made about him in the 70's and 80's. Can anyone help me out ?

    The one to look out for is "The Road To 1984" . Made by Granada and shown in 1984 on Channel 4. Saw it back then and have wanting to see it again ever since. The best drama based on Orwell that I have seen.



    Pretty sure it was never repeated.
