BAFTA Scotland was joined by actor Morven Christie, Sophie Bicknell (Script Executive), and Patrick Schweitzer (Tall Story Pictures Executive Producer) for a Q&A following a special preview screening of new ITV original drama The Bay.
When Detective Sergeant Lisa Armstrong is assigned to a missing persons investigation, at first it seems like any other – tragic, but all too familiar. As a Family Liaison Officer, she’s trained never to get emotionally involved. Her job is to support families during the worst time of their lives whilst also to be the eyes and ears of the police investigation; a cuckoo in the nest. But there’s something very different about this particular case. With horror Lisa realises she’s got a personal connection with this frightened family; one that could compromise her and the investigation. As she grapples to get justice for the grieving family, Lisa discovers it could come at a cost.
This event took place at Everyman Cinema on Thursday 14 March and was hosted by Paul English.
