Jake's Progress

Christopher Dunkley
Financial Times, Arts Television


Jake's Progress was a different sort of drama series again: written by Alan Bleasdale, dealing with the contemporary world, very sharp, very funny, although bleak when you began to realise what it was telling you about the way so many people were leading their lives. Jake's Progress was the sort of drama finite, the product of one mind, not written to any formula that critics and theorists had been telling us for years would not be finding a place on television for much longer. Well, Channel 4 was still doing it in 1995 and if BBC2 had stopped it was very recently.
