Roddy Doyle's first original screenplay Family was one of the most successful television programmes ever broadcast on RTE and a watershed moment in Irish television history. Set in a bleak Dublin housing estate, the four-part drama follows the lives of the Spencer family and deals with many of the social issues facing Irish families at the time. The compelling and multi-award winning Family stimulated a string of political debates across Ireland following its broadcast. Doyle's typically uncompromising narrative in each episode comes from a different family member - rebellious teenagers, an abusive alcoholic father and a mentally and physically battered mother. Ignited by Charlo Spencer's violent behaviour, infidelities and criminal activities, his wife and children are driven to breaking point. Roddy Doyle won the 1993 Booker Prize for his novel Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha, and his other works include the BAFTA Award Winning The Commitments and Prix Italia/RTS/Toronto award winning The Snapper.
