Writer Lisa McGee introduces her new sitcom, Derry Girls. Set around The Troubles in Northern Ireland in the 1990s, she explains the series shows how the area was still a "brilliant place to live and grow up" as a teenager.
Lisa McGee's acutely observed yet rip-roaringly funny sitcom set against the backdrop of the Troubles wraps up what has been a terrific second season. It is November 1995 and the entire community is anticipating a visit from Potus-with-the-most Bill Clinton. For the girls, it's an excuse to try to become BFFs with Chelsea. For shady shopkeep Dennis, it's a pretext to flog off-colour Yank tat. And for Granda Joe, it's a chance to settle an old score with Uncle Colm dating back more than 30 years.
