FIVE Leaves press has published a study of the work of Malcolm Hulke, written by socialist historian Michael Herbert.
Hulke was a successful writer for radio, television and the cinema from the 1950s to the late 1970s. He wrote for Armchair Theatre, the Avengers and Doctor Who, for which he is best remembered.
He was also, for a time, a member of the Communist Party of Great Britain ....Who wrote to, at least in part, indoctrinate British children;
Doctor Who is the longest-running science fiction TV programme in the world. It was created in 1963 by the BBC’s head of drama Sydney Newman as a science fiction series that would teach children about history and science.And politics. Sorta like the House Committee on Un-American Activities found in the USA years before.
Doctor Who and the Communist: Malcolm Hulke and his career in television costs £4 and can be ordered directly from Five Leaves at http://Cut out the Amazon middleman?
