  • The Wednesday Plays: Up The Junction

    109,098 views 2 years ago
    Rube, Sylvie and Eileen are three Clapham factory girls up for a good time: flirting with lads in the pub, practising the twist and swapping tales with the other women at work. But will the misfortunes and tragedies that befall them break their seemingly irrepressible spirit?

    This ground-breaking drama saw Ken Loach take the filming out of the studio and onto the very streets depicted in the story. With an immediacy only ever seen in current affairs programmes, the portrayal of ordinary people's lives had an authenticity seldom witnessed in television drama.
