Talking to Billy
A documentary for BBCNI to launch the re-screening of the Billy Plays, which were arguably the most important and successful dramas ever made in Northern Ireland.

Filmed in early 1980s Belfast, the dramas were a first for many involved, including Kenneth Branagh and writer Graham Reid. In this documentary, the cast – including James Ellis and Brid Brennan – share their memories of the landmark dramas that will always remain close to their hearts.
