A Passionate Woman

Part 1 of a 2-part TV version of writer Kay Mellor's 'A Passionate Woman' airs on BBC1 this Sunday evening (11 April). The drama takes place in 1950s and 1980s Leeds, with scenes starring Billie Piper, set during a 1950s visit to the city by the Queen, being filmed at Crich Tramway Village on 15 November 2009.

Although Leeds 180 featured as the main tramcar, MET 331 temporarily became an additional Leeds City Transport vehicle for some shots.

Produced by Leeds-based Rollem Productions, there's the possibility of a feature-length theatrical release in due course.
