New Who producer Russell T. Davies will appear on the UK arts television magazine show "The South Bank Show" on February 8 at 22:45, according to their website as well as an appearance by the show's presenter Melvin Bragg on the "Today with Des and Mel" show. Says the South Bank site, "Can television drama still explore the state of the nation? Is there a place for politics in television drama? Just how truthful is docudrama? These are just some of the questions explored in the second programme in this two-part South Bank Show Special. Revealing the secrets and craft behind their work are some of this country's leading writers including Paul Abbott, Tony Marchant and Russell T Davies. With exclusive footage from several up-and-coming dramas for 2004, contributions from actors, directors and commissioning editors, this is an in-depth look at whether television drama can still break new boundaries in a medium dominated by reality TV and lifestyle shows."
