I got a message from PG yesterday:

Gavin Millar has died. Obit's worth a read. He was a great friend then champion of Rose Wilton, and he and Melvyn Bragg produced the film I made of one of Joyce's Dubliners stories which is where I met  Rose. He and his wife had 5 children and they gave a new meaning to Bohemian. 

It took a certain amount of digging this morning to establish that the Joyce dramatisation must be Grace which went out on the BBC in 1972. I am recording it here so I don't forget.

"In Grace by James Joyce we have the theme of alcoholism, redemption, religion and paralysis." Sounds right up my alley. I must read it, PG's TV version I assume is lost.
