"Framed" is about the move of the National Gallery's art collection to a Wales mine for safekeeping (a la WWII) due to a plumbing disaster. Trevor Eve stars as a stodgy curator whose world is upended by a local teacher (Eve Myles) whose idea of art differs from his. At the same time, he forms an attachment to a young boy (Sam Davies) whose financially distressed family has fallen on even harder times since his father left. Adapted by Frank Cottrell Boyce from his popular children's book.
