Tipping The Velvet is the highly anticipated, controversial, passionate love story recently screened on the BBC in the UK. Scheduled to hit our shores on the ABC late this year, Tipping The Velvet is absolutely guaranteed to create widespread debate as the sizzling sexual storyline heats up our screens. The UK press have had a field day with Tipping The Velvet,and its central character, Nan Astley, causing controversy and heaping acclaim upon it even before it aired. The Daily Mail described it as rude and the Telegraph loved it! Packed with lavish costumes and even more lavish sex, Tipping The Velvet is set to become a SMASH HIT in Australia.

Screenwriter Andrew Davies, better known for his work on Bridget Jones Diary and more recently Bridget Jones Diary 2, has created an intruging, unique blend of drama with Tipping The Velvet, pushing boundaries and creating characters and a stroyline that will keep you captivated.

Focusing on the strong element of love in Tipping The Velvet Andrew Davies belives in its potential for wide appeal ."I think its a universal story. Although its about the life of a young lesbian in 1890s London, anybody whos grown up, anybody whos been in love, or anybody whos struggled to make their way in life is going to identify with Nan and go on the journey with her."

Tipping The Velvet stars Alexi Sayle and Keeley Hawes, (also from highly acclaimed upcoming series, SPOOKS) Rachael Stirling (Othello) and Anna Chancellor (Four Weddings and a Funeral).
