Moving On

Moving On  


Created by Emmy® winner and multi BAFTA award-winning writer Jimmy McGovern (Cracker, Hillsborough, The Street) for the BBC, Moving On is a critically acclaimed series of stand-alone contemporary dramas featuring performances by a stellar cast and now celebrating a landmark 50th episode.

The series explores complex issues from addiction and infidelity, to depression and financial struggles; the life of a soldier’s wife, to the pain of a loved one lost. Lies that should never have been spoken to truths that are hard to hear – all linked by the common theme of characters who reach a turning point in life... and then move on.

Also available is Moving On: Secrets And Words featuring stand-alone dramas on the theme of adult literacy, which affects millions of adults worldwide.
