Screen Two: 0 Mary This London


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Three young Dubliners go to London in search of fun, fortune and, in the case of 17-year-old Mary Kelly, an abortion. Homeless and jobless, their adventures quickly turn sour in this cautionary tale by Shane Connaughton , co-writer (with Jim Sheridan ) of the Oscar-winning film My Left Foot.
Connaughton's previous credits include the film The Playboys, which starred Albert Finney and Aidan Quinn ; he is currently working on a screenplay on the life of W B Yeats and Maud Gonne entitled A Terrible Beauty, to be directed by Anjelica Huston. Also the author of two novels (A Border Station and The Run of the Country), Connaughton was the subject of last year's BBC documentary A Border Childhood.
Sinead O'Connor sings the opening song A Dream for Living, while the title song is performed by Ronnie Drew, lead singer of the Dubliners.
Producer Helen Greaves
Director Suri Krishnamma
Followed by Saint of the Day St john Climacus

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
