This television anthology drama series of 60 individual films was produced by the BBC and transmitted on BBC1 between 1989 and 1998.

The series was born following the demise of the BBC’s Play for Today in 1984 when Producer Kenneth Trodd was asked to formulate a new series of one-off dramas shot entirely on film, the result of which was Screen Two, which began on BBC2 in 1985.

In 1989, the series was adapted for more mainstream audiences on BBC1, and Screen One was born.
