Shandy Hall (NAWE's Registered office) - together with Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan (pictured) and all narrative diversions possible - features in this weekend's South Bank Show presented by Melvyn Bragg.
'The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy': Laurence Sterne's comic novel is classic, timeless, hugely inventive... and totally unfilmable - until now. Michael Winterbottom, one of Britain's most original and prolific film directors, has brought this 18th Century work to the screen. Part period drama and part film-within a film, Winterbottom's adaptation, entitled 'A Cock and Bull Story', is a celebration of a joyously nonsensical book and the madness of filmmaking - and The South Bank Show has been granted exclusive access to the entire filmmaking process.

Produced, directed and filmed by Archie Powell
