A.S.K. - A Short Film - Photographs
All I know is that my daughter is in a cell, with criminals and low lifes, and its eating away at me
Between you and me and the gatepost, she's quite keen on you, but you know her, she won't let ton
It's coming out of your wages
And why should I?
And when you done that, you can empty the bins and clean out the sink
That's four pounds fifty you've made me!
I don't owe you anything
I'll top it
I mean it is an invitation alright
Well I'm not giving up without a fight
Its not up for negotiation, you're fired
I've spoken to Grant
No, the law's on the side of the person who has got the most money
Listen I'm doing my best alright
Look just forget about it
It makes my blood boil
No more screw ups alright
No, what difference does it make?
People round here are getting really annoyed with ya
So now you're incomptent as well as a liar
Been busy yourself by the looks of it, but then he always was a sucker for blondes
Well spit it out
You invited him in for coffee
You owe me, you said so yourself
You won't win, not against Johnny
You had a nice lovely meal and then what
You alright mate
I'd like to see that film though
I feel like a film star
I know you don't wanna hear it, but I love you
I'll be smiling even more
I made a mistake on a cake, and you half kill me!
I'm sorry to bother you, can I have a word please
Noone cares what you think
Oh yeah, no worries, piece of cake nan
Same old Peggy ain't it, everyone elses' fault
She's got servants, she won't open the door
This man who you're great mates with, is a thief, and extorter, and I wouldn't be surprised if he was a murderer
Who else are you gonna cheese off eh?
Ah here she comes, the wicked witch of Walford
What the hell have you been doing, Johnny's livid
What do you reckon I should do then, drop her a line, or just pop round with a decent pack of biscuits
In February 1983, two years before EastEnders hit the screen, the show was nothing more than a vague idea in the mind of a handful of BBC executives, who decided that what BBC One needed was a popular bi-weekly drama series that would attract the kind of mass audiences ITV was getting with Coronation Street.
The first people to whom David Reid, then head of series and serials, turned were Julia Smith and Tony Holland, a well established producer/script editor team who had first worked together on Z-Cars. The outline that Reid presented was vague: two episodes a week, 52 weeks a year. Smith and Holland went away scratching their heads. Why did the BBC want to fill the already-full schedules with a new soap? Little did they know just how popular it would become.
There was anxiety at first that the viewing public would not accept a new soap set in the south of England.
Smith and Holland were both Londoners ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬? Holland was from a big East End family, but when they researched Victoria Square they found massive changes in areas they thought they knew well. However, delving further into the East End, they found exactly what they had been searching for. A real East End spirit ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬? an inward looking quality, a distrust of strangers and authority figures, a sense of territory and community that Holland and Smith summed up as 'Hurt one of us and you hurt us all'.
The target launch date was January 1985 when BBC One was planning a major revamp in its schedules. Julia Smith and Tony Holland had just 11 months in which to write, cast and shoot the whole thing. However, in February 1984 they didn't even have a title or a place to film. The project had a number of working titles ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬? Square Dance, Round the Square, Round the Houses, London Pride, East 8. It was the latter that stuck (E8 is the postcode for Hackney) in the early months of creative process.
