Last Sunday, as BBC4’s Live from Television Centre project drew to a close, writer artist and part time superhero Jess Thom delivered her Broadcast from Biscuit Land.
The all singing, all dancing, all biscuity finale created a memorable and moving spectacle for the live audience in Television Centre’s historic drama block as well as for viewers at home.
The response in the media has been incredible. Here are the highlights:
“Live from Television Centre brought pioneering spirit back to the BBC ”
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian Monday 16th November
“The Guardian view on live theatre at the BBC: a spirit of adventure and risk, and a hint of chaos ”
The Guardian Editorial, Monday 16th November
“The show closes with the inimitable Jess Thom… If anyone embodies the utter triumph that is the power of spontaneity, it is her.”
Georgia Snow, The Stage Monday 16th November
“Backstage in Biscuit Land was a masterful choice to finish the programme.”
