tpr media implemented a major national publicity campaign across print, broadcast, online and new media, positioning the series as a major television event and reinforcing Channel 4’s reputation for delivering contemporary, cutting-edge drama that tackles controversial issues – in this case gang culture. We also organised a cast and crew screening at the BFI in London for 450 people.
