Armchair Theatre was ITV’s flagship drama anthology series. Initially screened between 1956 and 1973, it was hugely popular, with viewing figures occasionally reaching twenty million. Pioneering, influential and challenging, the series became a showcase for the post-war generation of British writers and actors. The series featured powerful, award-winning plays, and had a lasting influence – testament to producer Sydney Newman’s passionate belief in television’s potential to bring high-quality drama to the viewing public.
