Written by Victoria Wood and inspired by an article in the New Yorker magazine, Loving Miss Hatto tells the story of an 'ordinary' married couple who managed to pull off the greatest fraud the classical music world has known, all from their modest bungalow in a genteel Hertfordshire town. With his wife stricken by cancer, record producer William Barrington-Coupe released other musicians' work under her name, actions which resulted in one of the biggest music frauds ever. Francesca Annis and Alfred Molina star. Fans of David Walliams might be interested to hear his Mr Stink airs at 6.30pm also on BBC1.
