Aha! Script Apart – the popular podcast revealing first-draft secrets of great movies –  comes to Picturehouse Central for its first-ever live episode, celebrating the recent tenth anniversary of a British comedy classic. 

Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa writers Neil and Rob Gibbons join host Al Horner for a screening of the Norwich radio star’s film debut, followed by an interview delving into its creation. Get ready to discover how the film originally had Alan facing off against Al-Qaeda (yes, really) and how key scenes and jokes came to be, as well as an update on what’s in store for Alan next…

The film finds Alan (Steve Coogan) in a slump, fed up with his career at North Norfolk Digital Radio. But when it emerges that the company's been sold, he becomes an unlikely negotiator – and potential breakout star – when the station is held hostage by a disgruntled fellow employee.
