Edna, the Inebriate Woman is a British television drama written by Jeremy Sandford which was transmitted as part of the Play for Today series on 21 October 1971. 

The play deals with an elderly woman, Edna (Patricia Hayes), who wanders through life in an alcoholic haze without a home, a job or any money. A rambling, pathetic yet defiant woman, Edna sleeps rough and begs for food and shelter and the drama follows her progress as she moves from hostel to hostel, going to a psychiatric ward and then prison along the way. 

Jeremy Sandford, who had previously written Cathy Come Home, researched the play by living rough himself for two weeks. The film was the only notable acting role of British actor Vivian MacKerrell, the real-life inspiration for the character Withnail in Withnail and I.

Harbour Lights Series One and Series Two is set in the beautiful harbour town of Bridehaven (alias West Bay) where Nick Berry (Heartbeat) plays Harbour Master Mike Nicholls. Bridehaven is a close knit community where feuding families, ruthless business dealings and the sea dominate local lives. Following a tragic diving accident which claims the life of his close friend, Mike returns to Bridehaven where he grew up, to take on the job as Harbour Master. But the near romance with police officer Melanie Rush (Tina Hobley), the ruthless business dealings of Tony Simpson (Gerard Horan) and the feuding of the Blade family - all take their toll.

In The Happy Hunting Ground, which is set amongst the fishing quaysides of the North East of England, manipulative Bob is first able to wangle his way into a prominent position within a fish distribution firm. It isn't long before he has his sights not only on the boss's job but also his wife as well. 
Fabulous entry in the Play for Today strand, all shot on film and on location in 1976. Neil Phillips is very strong in the central role as Bob who for all his sparkling eyes and happy go lucky manner is not actually very nice at all. It also offers up a very valuable glimpse into a way of life that has all but disappeared these days. Watch out too for Tim Healy's debut performance as a fish worker. Can be seen as a companion piece another Play for Today The Land of Green Ginger.
