Loving Miss Hatto

Loving Miss Hatto

Loving Miss Hatto charts the incredible story of pianist Joyce Hatto, her relationship with her husband and the controversial recordings that made her famous late in life. When Joyce Hatto died in June 2006 she was considered one of the greatest pianists Britain had ever produced. A collection of little known recordings released in her later years had brought her real fame. But a few months after her death, Joyce's husband, William Barrington-Coupe, admitted the recordings were a fraud - he had embellished Joyce's own playing with those of other pianists. Starring Francesca Annis and Alfred Molina and scripted by Victoria Wood, this tender, funny and moving drama tells the story of Joyce and her husband 'Barrie', beginning with their meeting in grey, post war, 1950s London and ending in the 21st century in a cul-de-sac in Royston, Hertfordshire. Loving Miss Hatto is a story of two young people with high hopes who, like most of us, get knocked back by life. It is - above all - a love story.
