UK: Takin’ Over The Asylum: Hey Jude Airs On BBC Scotland Tonight

The 1994 comedy drama stars Ken Stott as Eddie McKenna, a replacement window salesman and part-time DJ who starts up a radio station in a psychiatric hospital in Glasgow. David Tennant  plays Campbell, a teenage bipolar resident of the facility. Other cast members include Katy Murphy as Francine, Andrew Macfadyen as Angus and Ruth McCabe as Rosalie, with Arabella Weir as radio exec Paula and a cameo from the late Spike Milligan. 

Written by Donna Franceschild and directed by David Blair, the BAFTA winning series explored the stigmatisation of people living with mental illness through the experiences of the hospital residents and McKenna's struggles with his own alcoholism.

The series wil also be streamed via BBC iPlayer.

Hey Jude airs tonight at 9pm:
First in a six-part drama serial, set in a psychiatric hospital. Eddie McKenna has a dream - to become a professional DJ. Sacked from his slot on Hospital Radio Glasgow and bored of his day job as a double glazing salesman, he agrees to resurrect the radio station at St Jude's Mental Hospital. Gradually he becomes involved in the lives of the patients and realises that not all the 'lunatics' are on the inside.
