Write a Play was a UK submission based TV show in which children under
the age of 15 could submit their own plays and scripts into the
competition. Rediffusion produced the show's first season in 1965, with
Jimmy Hanley providing the introductions. The show was renewed for a
second season in 1967, with Clive Goodwin this time introducing each
submission. The first episode of the second season was named The
Prehistoric Man & Thrice Upon a Night-Time and was written by
Gabriel Dayan, who went on to work in the television and film industry.
