Twenty Thousand Streets Under The Sky - BBC - Drama
The mini-series follows three people in the Midnight Bell pub in the 1930s. Bob, a waiter, Ella, a barmaid, and Jenny, a customer. The first episode follows Bob, Jenny is followed in the second, and Ella is followed in the final piece, following Patrick Hamilton's trilogy of semi-autobiographical novels of which this is based upon. 30s London is recreated fantastically. It is a land of mundane routine and dull working class blandness, where people go about their lives wishing they could be more but never achieving it. This is a great drama from the BBC!
