Pete postlethwaite again played the dad of one of the characters it was set in a tower block in liverpool i used to live in st georges heights .The movie downtime was partly filmed there as well . Needle was a bbc play about 1990 as the title suggests it was about drug abuse heroin addiction .The BBC when on site told the residents i twas called The Eagle about a young couples first home and their struggles ! didnt want to annoy the locals during filming by portraying the blockas a drug ridden hell , wich it was in part like many back then .Anyway if anyone has a copy of it i would be interested jimmy mcgovern wrote it .
