Drama – on the mean streets of Belfast

Television is an art form that people share and talk about - no more so than when it is around the intrigue of a good police series. We grew up watching police dramas on the mean streets of American cities. Today the real winners have been set in Belfast – including The Fall, Line of Duty and of course the runaway success, Blue Lights, with its stories of rookie police officers. A measure of its success is that it was commissioned for two further series by the BBC, before season two even began – after a shock ending to season one..

Our guest is Declan Law, who along with Adam Patterson developed the Blue Lights drama. Both are from current affairs journalism backgrounds with the BBC, including Panorama. Declan will talk about the process of creating and selling a new drama in a competitive market place and offer us an insight into Blue Lights, the characters and filming in Belfast. This is definitely an Arts Society event not to be missed.
