About Screen Two

Screen Two was a British television series that aired from 1985 to 1994, showcasing some of the most innovative and daring dramas of its time. Produced by the BBC, the show featured a wide range of stories, from gritty social realism to surreal comedy, and attracted some of the biggest names in British acting and directing.

One of the most notable episodes of Screen Two was "The Firm," a searing portrait of football hooliganism that starred Gary Oldman and Lesley Manville. Directed by Alan Clarke, the film was praised for its unflinching realism and its powerful performances.

Another standout episode was "The Black and Blue Lamp," a clever mash-up of the classic British crime dramas "The Blue Lamp" and "Z Cars." Written by Stephen Frears and starring Robbie Coltrane and Julie Walters, the film was a witty and subversive take on the genre.

Other notable episodes of Screen Two included "The Last Romantics," a poignant drama about a group of elderly musicians, and "The Grass Arena," a harrowing true story of addiction and redemption.

Overall, Screen Two was a groundbreaking series that pushed the boundaries of television drama and showcased some of the best talent in British filmmaking. Its legacy can still be felt today in the many innovative dramas that continue to be produced in the UK.
