Making successful factual TV drama is fraught with difficulties. The stakes are even higher when programme-makers tackle real-life events – and no more so when they are as recent and raw as the ones depicted in the summer hit BBC One’s three-parter The Salisbury Poisonings.
The Salisbury Poisonings
Bradley Walsh and Son: Breaking Dad
Wednesday 10th June, 8pm
After the success of series one, Bradley Walsh and Son: Breaking Dad returns for a second series, with actor and presenter Bradley Walsh partnering up with son Barney for another road trip.
The Salisbury Poisonings follows the true events surrounding the poisonings of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in 2018. The drama looks at the impact the poisonings had on the Salisbury community and the extraordinary acts of heroism from ordinary people that followed the event, and the tragedy that followed.
