It’s always fun watching local papers find a way to make stories about less local things. Take this article for example, from the Birmingham Sunday Mercury on 2nd June 1991. It’s ostensibly about some local actors who have been making Hollywood films, including Rik Mayall and Lenny Henry.
There’s a brief mention that Ben Elton has been comissioned to write a screenplay. Nothing seemed to have come of that, so it would be interesting to learn what that was about.
