There are different kinds of fear,” says Quentin Sommerville, the BBC’s Middle East correspondent. “There’s the risk of getting kidnapped, the threat of roadside bombs and, here in Ukraine, the danger from shelling.”
Watching two disabled people make love on prime-time terrestrial TV is something many disability campaigners thought they’d never see. But last month, in BBC Two’s widely praised drama Then Barbara Met Alan, we witnessed the eponymous Barbara and Alan enjoy being intimate in a scene that may well go down as one of the most powerful and moving moments of TV drama in 2022.
Actor, rapper and comedian Michael Dapaah will join the cast as influential TV personality Mensah, who has a difficult relationship with his on-screen co-host Chidi Abara, played by presenter and comedian Judi Love.
The BBC drama follows the forbidden love story between Sephy (Masali Baduza) and Callum (Jack Rowan), based on Malorie Blackman’s bestselling novel of the same name.
The second series will see the aftermath of the dramatic series one finale, which saw Sephy and Callum run away together after discovering they are expecting a baby.
Following the release of BBC's new factual drama, Then Barbara Met Alan, about the passing of the Disability Discrimination Act in 1995, writer Jack Thorne, director Amit Sharma and disability leads Nichola Garde, BBC, Ally Castle, Channel 4, and Caroline O'Neill, DDPTV, discuss disability and the TV industry. The panel is chaired by Jordan Jarett-Bryan, Channel 4 News reporter.
A panel of BBC, ITN and Sky journalists examine the challenges of covering the war in Ukraine. BBC's Paul Adams, ITV's Rachel Corp, VICE News’ Hind Hassan and Sky News’ Jonathan Levy, chaired by Sian Williams, discuss how broadcasters and journalists deal with safety issues, access, verifying material and the difficulties of 24-hour news driven by social media and online coverage, all while remaining impartial, keeping their sanity, and not falling victim to propaganda.
The four-part drama explores the heartbreak and pain of a family being torn apart from having to make a choice no parent would ever want to make.
Sharon Horgan and Michael Sheen play married couple Nicci and Andrew and together they have two daughters Katie (Alison Oliver) and Marnie (Niamh Moriarty).
However, Marnie is terminally ill with a life-threatening condition and the doctors believe the kindest thing to do would be to let her die.
Based on Alderton's memoirs, the first look images for the drama of Everything I Know About Love features the close knit group of friends Maggie (Emma Appleton), Birdy (Bel Powley), Nell (Marli Siu) and Amara (Aliyah Odoffin), plus Street (Connor Finch).
The drama promises to give an unvarnished look at the adventures that occur when you’re trying to survive your 20s.
Set in 2012, Maggie and Birdy are childhood best friends living in a London houseshare together, facing bad dates, heartaches and humiliations.
I squirmed in my seat when former doctor Adam Kay verbally eviscerated a heckler. He was as sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel and as mean as a betrayed woman in a blues song. It hurt. Anyone attending his live shows: be warned.
His new medical drama, BBC One’s This Is Going To Hurt, should come with a health warning. This is not because of the gore (of which there is plenty), but because one aspect of junior doctors’ lives has improved since his and my time – though this, sadly, could soon regress with Brexit.
Everyone has a story about when they first became aware of the BBC. For me, it was when I was roused from sleep by the sound of a TV programme my mum was watching. Picture this: a little boy trudging downstairs in his PJs to see what was so thrilling that it warranted his dear mum waking herself (and him!) so early on a Sunday morning, only to find that it was a show about British electrical plugs. And, no, I’m not joking.
