Award-winning High Times to return to TV screens

AN award-winning drama series, broadcast on stv, is to return to TV screens this month.

The first series of High Times gets a repeat from next Thursday, while a brand new, second series begins at the end of next month.

Written by John Rooney, the second series takes off where the first finished: on the fictional Fairmyle Estate with its cast list of different, colourful characters.

Series one scooped a Scottish BAFTA four years ago and also took a Celtic Film and Television Award for best drama. Three years ago, it was also short-listed for a Prix Italia award and a Rose D’Or.
