32 Brinkburn Street (BBC Drama North)

From left to right Alice Nutter(writer), Kate Rowland(Creative Director) and Karen Laws(writer).

Attended the premiere screening of 32 Brinkburn Street last night at Side Cinema. This programme will be shown on BBC One Daytime tv next week. It`s a five part-er developed by Karen Laws after a writersroom Drama Development Day.

It`s set in a Georgian terraced house in Manchester and follows the lives of two generations of the same family, one in 1931 and the other in 2011.

"The drama moves between contemporary Britain and thirties Manchester, exploring the changing nature of society and the family and how each respective character copes with similar issues, subtly highlighting how the world has changed but how human nature fundamentally remains the same."

THIS IS FANTASTIC. A little complicated at first to move between the many characters and time lines, but once in after only a few minutes, I was totally gripped. Can`t wait to see the other episodes. A must to record if you are at work!!!

Also, the BBC writersroom website is worth signing up for their regular e mails, competitions, writer`s events and advice
