The majority of the entries in the database have been generated by Dr Basil Chiasson and Dr Catriona Fallow (both working on the stage production records) and Dr Will Davies (working across film, TV and radio). Dr Amanda Wrigley has input a comprehensive set of basic data for radio and television broadcsast. The film entries were initially prepared by Dr Billy Smart.

Could you contribute to the database?

Did you participate in a professional production of a play by Harold Pinter, or did you work on one of his films, radio or television dramas? Have you kept an old theatre programme for a historic production, which might contain details that would help us refine entries in the database?
