Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran form the most successful television comedy scriptwriting partnership active today. Their award-winning successes include Birds of a Feather, Goodnight Sweetheart and The New Statesman. Join them for a masterclass as they share some of the secrets of their craft, via examples from some of their most celebrated series.

They will particularly focus on the contrasting challenges of their work on the original Birds of a Feather and on their reinvention of it for the currently applauded ITV sequel.
