Synopsis:
This engrossing comedy/drama explores the issues surrounding mental health with sensitivity and black humour. It helped launch the careers of Ken Stott and David Tennant, and won a BAFTA for Best Serial and an RTS Award for Best Writer. Eddie McKenna is a double-glazing salesman who moonlights as a DJ for hospital radio in a Scottish mental asylum - St. Judes. He nurtures close friendships with the patients there including Francine, a self-harmer, schizophrenic Fergus, OCD sufferer Rosaline and Campbell, a manic depressive, with whom he shares a dream to make it into the commercial radio scene.
As Campbell's inspired antics seem to bring the pair closer to their goal, the pressures of work, relationships and family begin to get to Eddie. With his wife threatening to spin out of control, it is Eddie's turn to look for help...
