Framed on BBC1

An adaptation of Framed by local author, screenwriter, and friend of The Reader Organisation Frank Cottrell Boyce will be shown on BBC 1 on Sunday 30th August.


Set almost entirely in Wales, the drama tells the story of 10-year-old Dylan Hughes and his family’s small petrol station; when his father leaves the family, it coincides with the arrival of a contingent from the National Portrait Gallery in London, who have brought paintings to Wales for safe-keeping after the gallery was flooded. The novel was inspired by the real-life practice during the Second World War of keeping paintings in Welsh mines.



Framed was directed by Andy De Emmony, and stars Trevor Eve and Eve Myles.
