Curriculum Vitae is a radio play by David Pownall. It was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 05 November 2002, as an installment of the Afternoon Play[1][2].


Set in the early 1960s, it concerns an idealistic young graduate who gets a well-paid job recruiting workers for a new Liverpool car plant. But Dad is a union man and sees his son's job as a betrayal of the shop-floor workers. Why should the young man have the right to hire or fire those more than twice his age?
