‘Seed’ was a single drama which went out in 1996, it was part of a new writers’ competition, the script was written by Cole Bradley.  The BFI database includes the following synopsis for it:

“Rites-of-passage drama set in Birmingham. Les is just out of prison and wants to see his baby but the mother Julie and her family are against the idea. Together with his friend Ben, Les decides to plant a field of wheat on a piece of waste ground for the baby. Ben has to decide whether to go to Jamaica or not and his decision depends on his girlfriend Hashi. She plans that they will make love three times in extraordinary places in order to make their decision.” http://ftvdb.bfi.org.uk/sift/title/553215

  • My first ever drama job; oh, how things have moved on!!

  • This was the first drama i edited on an early AVID. I have a copy on Beta sp in my loft! It was particular for the cgi blue screen field of wheat created by graphics, and the music which enhanced the quirky nature of the storyline.
