: This Life: Coming Together

The first of an 11-part comic drama about a group of aspiring lawyers who share a shabby London house.
See today's choices.
Written by Amy Jenkins
(Repeated Friday at 1 1.45pm)
See This Week: page 8

This Life 9.45pm BBC2
They're young, good-looking professionals, they enjoy drink, drugs and tangled relationships. They're the stars of This Life, a new drama series set in the law courts, wine bars and bedrooms of London - a promising British hybrid of Friends with a realistic edge.
Miles, Milly and her boyfriend Egg all studied law together and are now sharing a house as they pursue their careers with varying degrees of success. Unreliable income means they have to recruit two new sharers: enter Anna, who once had a brief fling with Miles and is desperate for a job at his chambers, and Warren, an ambitious law graduate currently on the lookout for a new boyfriend.
Amy Jenkins's script is a faithful rendition of her protagonists' lives complete with sex and swearing. The leads are fresh and likeable, and the camerawork zooms around in NYPD Blue style.
See page 8 for more facts of This Life.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
