Jeremy Bernard Is Unwell BBC Drama, Peter O'Toole

In one off comedy drama Jeremy Bernard Is Unwell, Jeffrey Bernard (Peter O’Toole), locked in a Soho pub, looks back over his life.

Recorded over three nights at London’s Old Vic Theatre. This was an abridged version of a long running play. Jeffrey Bernard was a well liked, but definitely an old soak, newspaper columnist. The title coming from whenever Jeffrey missed one of his columns through his love of the old hard stuff.
