Visitors: On a farmhouse at the edge of Salisbury Plain, a family is falling apart. Stephen can’t afford to put his mother into care; Arthur can’t afford to stop working and look after his wife. When a young stranger with blue hair moves in to look after Edie as her mind unravels, the family are forced to ask: are we living the way we wanted? Visitors is a haunting, beautiful look at the way our lives slip past us.

Eventide: A love song, an elegy, a celebration: Eventide tells the story of three people whose worlds are disappearing. John is a landlord forced to sell up; Liz is a church organist who can't get a gig; Mark takes what work he can just to pay the rent. Their tale unfold round the back of a pub hidden deep in the heart of the Hampshire countryside – a heart that doesn't seem to be beating any more.

While We’re Here: Eddie and Carol were lovers once, but their lives went in different directions. Now they meet again on a park bench in a town full of memories, and find something still burns between them.

Nightfall: What you believed in seemed to vanish overnight. So how are you going to live now? One family struggling in the heart of the country looks for a star to steer by as they try to plot a route out of the dark they’ve been pitched into.
