This article provides details about a new arts programme being launched by BBC-2 called The Other Channel. One of the planned features of the show is a short films, about 20-30 minutes, based on famous short stories. Ideally, this will give directors used to spending years on a feature length film a chance to make a very different kind of work. The first planned run is based on James Joyce’s novel Dubliners.
