Jack Rosenthal brought authentic Jewish stories to British TV in pieces such as Bar Mitzvah Boy, for the Play for Today series; Martin Esslin, as head of radio drama at the BBC, nurtured a generation of British writing talent; and TV personality Jonathan Miller’s (pictured above) career spanned theatre, comedy and documentaries. In this instalment of our BBC at 100 series, their children – playwright Amy Rosenthal, musician Monica Esslin-Peard and writer William Miller – come together to discuss the impact of their fathers’ work.

This event originally took place 21 November 2022, hosted in association with the Lyons Learning Project and Insiders/Outsiders.
