I have no inside information on this. I was due to see a preview screening of it at the BFI, followed by a Q&A with the creative team and the cast, but I had to pull out at the last minute as I was ill.
But I just know it is going to be excellent based on the concept and the cast and so I am recommending it as my top TV tip of the week!
Cut and pasted from the BBC website:
White Heat is a new six-part drama series about the interwoven lives, loves and betrayals of seven characters whose relationships are forged in the white heat of the Sixties through to present day, written for BBC Two by award-winning writer Paula Milne.
Passionate, dangerous and compelling, the characters' love stories and friendships are set against a backdrop that takes us from Wilson to Thatcher, feminism to the Falklands, hedonism to HIV - exploring the personal and political journeys which shaped their destinies to make them the people they are today.
White Heat starts on BBC2 today (Thursday) at 9pm.
The Guardian ran a great feature article on it earlier last week:
White Heat: 'What women went through in the 60s was seismic'. Screenwriter Paula Milne says her own experiences inspired the new BBC2 drama about a group of people through the decades.
