Thankyou to Belle for allowing me to be involved in a site for someone who is so wonderfully talented. My first update is for The Village and screen captures have been added to the gallery of Nico’s role as Joe Middleton as well as some promotional images

The five-part drama, inspired by musician PJ Harvey’s Kosovan notebooks, was written by Fin Kennedy and is told over a week in January 2017.

On Kosovo Field is a new drama written by Fin Kennedy that grew out of the body of work created by PJ Harvey on and after a journey to Kosovo, told over five episodes this January and featuring unreleased song demos from the musician woven through. It stars Michelle Keegan (Our Girl) and Nico Mirallegro (Rillington Place, Common).

Harvey’s latest album The Hope Six Demolition Project and her book of poetry The Hollow Of The Hand draws from several journeys undertaken by Harvey over a four-year period from 2011-2014; one of those journeys was to Kosovo. The inspiration and starting point for the drama came from Harvey’s notepads from her trip to Kosovo, her poetry and song lyrics and her Kosovan song demos.

BBC Radio Producer Nadia Molinari and writer Fin Kennedy used the materials to develop a drama about two Kosovan siblings and their journey.

Commenting on her process of gathering materials during her trips, PJ Harvey has said: “When I’m writing a song I visualise the entire scene. I can see the colours, I can tell the time of day, I can sense the mood, I can see the light changing, the shadows moving, everything in that picture. Gathering information from secondary sources felt too far removed for what I was trying to write about. I wanted to smell the air, feel the soil and meet the people of the countries I was fascinated with.”

Writer Fin Kennedy’s starting point was Harvey’s rich material, and the images from the songs and poems are weaved through the drama as well as the song demos themselves. Kennedy and producer Nadia Molinari also travelled to Kosovo, where they retraced some of Harvey’s steps and also spent time talking to journalists, politicians and human rights activists currently working on conflict resolution and reconciliation in Kosovo.

On Kosovo Field is the search for an identity via a road trip back through a lost heritage. The two central characters are two Kosovan-born siblings Rebeka (played by Michelle Keegan) and her younger brother Dardan (played by Nico Mirallegro) who were brought to Manchester as unaccompanied minors under a special evacuation programme during the conflict in 1999. The siblings, now adults, return to Kosovo after a mass grave is discovered close to their native village.

They discover a young nation striving to forge a path for hope and reconciliation and realise that they too must journey into their past to move on. They carry a set of keys, given to them by a neighbour before they left, offering the chance to unlock their home and, with it, their memories. They are forced to confront the painful truth of what happened to their parents.

Writer Fin Kennedy says: “The ‘play cycle’ as an idea takes its inspiration from the traditional song cycles of the Albania/Kosovo region. By the end of the cycle we come to understand that the siblings are a metaphor for Kosovo itself, the newest country in Europe, poignantly searching for an identity after centuries of conflict.”

Jeremy Howe, Radio 4 Commissioning Editor for Drama, says: “Seventeen years ago Kosovo, a place that few of us had ever heard of, was all over the headlines, then the news juggernaut moved on and the place was forgotten. On Kosovo Field shows how drama can get underneath the news headlines and explore with real emotional depth how the politics we hear about in the news, the war that is glimpsed in thirty second bulletins, affects real people.”

On Kosovo Field is broadcast on Radio 4 Monday 9 – Friday 13 January at 10.45am and the five episodes are repeated each day at 7.45pm. It’s produced by Nadia Molinari, BBC Radio Productions and written by Fin Kennedy.

Nico Mirallegro is all set to be interviewed about his new TV drama, but his head seems a little elsewhere. The actor has just come out of a cinema screening of Ken Loach’s I, Daniel Blake, and the film’s hard-hitting social message is playing on his mind.

“It’s very, very emotional. It gets you angry. It’s a good solid message on the failed society. I can’t stop thinking about it,” he says, in his softly-spoken Mancunian accent.

The veteran director is “a hero” to Mirallegro, who cut his teeth on Hollyoaks (as angst-ridden teen Newt) before starring in E4’s Bafta-nominated My Mad Fat Diary.

“I saw him on BBC Question Time the other day and I was screaming at the telly like, ‘Finally we have someone who’s not pussyfooting around the questions!’ He was giving real answers. It frustrates you when people don’t answer the question. It’s like watching really bad actors fight their way out of a paper bag.”

The former Hollyoaks actor is clearly switched on to the world around him. His Twitter feed is populated with tweets about social issues, and his recent performances on screen – from Jimmy McGovern’s BBC drama Common, about the UK’s controversial joint enterprise law, to this year’s gay football film The Pass -display a compassion and a maturity beyond his 25 years.

His latest role, in which he appears alongside acclaimed stars Tim Roth and Samantha Morton, is equally meaty.

The Pass, starring Russell Tovey (Looking), will arrive in UK theaters on 9th December 2016 it has been announced.

The film, which is the directorial debut of Ben A. Williams, opened the BFI Flare Festival earlier this year. The Pass will be presented as part of the BFI London Film Festival where it will screen in the debate section.

The Pass also stars Arinze Kene (Our Girl) and is adapted for the screen by John Donnelly from his hit play, first presented at the Royal Court Theatre. It is produced by Duncan Kenworthy (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Love Actually, The Eagle)

The film tells the story of three very different nights over 10 years in the life of a Premier League Footballer. Jason (Russell Tovey) is at the beginning of his career, and on the night before his first big international match he and long-time friend and team-mate Ade (Arinze Kene) share a hotel room, trying to beat the inevitable pre-match tensions with locker-room banter and teenage high-jinks. Out of nowhere Jason kisses Ade. The emotional repercussions of this pass, and the decisions that follow on and off the pitch, have a major impact on every aspect of the public and private lives of both men across the next decade, in a sporting world where image is everything.

Check out the trailer below!
