TV Drama Linked to RaW campaign

Rocket Man, starring Robson Green, is a new TV drama that supports the BBC’s Reading and Writing campaign

‘Watch out for a brand new TV drama which is supporting the RaW campaign. ‘Rocket Man’, starring our good friend Robson Green, hits the BBC One Sunday night schedule from 30th October.

 

Robson stars as George Stevenson, a bereaved husband who dreams of sending his wife’s ashes into outer space. It’s an upbeat, funny story about a man who still dares to dream.

Make sure you tune in at 8pm every Sunday evening to see how the link with RaW works – and remember that there’ll be a plug for RaW at the end of some of the episodes, so watch out for even more RaW interest in your centre as a result!

 

RaW is the BBC’s biggest ever adult literacy campaign – a fresh, entertainment-led drive to engage people’s passions and interests. RaW is aimed at intermediate readers in the UK between 25 and 54. Over a three to five-year period, the purpose is not just to improve basic skills but to create a fun and interactive space to learn based around the everyday, practical experiences of adult learners.’
