TV MUSEUM SHOWING POTTER RETROSPECTIVE

There's more to Dennis Potter's creative and controversial television work than "Pennies From Heaven" and "The Singing Detective."

But those classic items are certainly included in what the Museum of Television and Radio says is the first complete retrospective of the British TV writer-director's work.The museum is staging it as a four-month event, through May 31, during which all Potter's extant telemovies, miniseries and adaptations will be presented. There will be repeated screenings of what the museum characterizes as "The Quintessential Potter," a core collection of five landmark works. There will also be screenings of 25 single plays and eight miniseries, the majority of which have not been seen in the United States. The British Broadcasting Corp. helped fund the show and make material available for screenings.
