1/5 Making Other Plans
The Fletcher family are just trying to love and look after each other at their home "until everything settles down". With their daughter's wedding coming up, they haven't got time for politics. But as the UK dissolves into conflict, organising the big day is getting more and more impossible.
Martin Jameson's drama draws on detailed research from BBC correspondents to analysts, contingency planners, and those with first hand experience of the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s, to make the Fletchers' adventures a compelling account of what civil war could do to us all.
Starring Jeremy Swift and Maureen Beattie.
Produced and directed by Jonquil Panting.
