The War Memorial Park, Millennium Square, the Ring Road, Browns Bar, Carey’s nightclub and other areas of Coventry all feature in this sitcom.

Six episodes of the dark comedy were broadcast on BBC2 between September 14 and October 23 2009 – and won acclaim from TV critics.

The show follows the character of Gaynor Jacks who has returned to Coventry after 12 years in London.

It was written by Neil Edmond and Emma Fryer, who also plays Gaynor.

Ms Fryer told the BBC in an interview: "I love Coventry, it's the place I'm happiest. It's the only place I really feel I know what I'm doing and where I'm going – both emotionally and physically. It's the only place I don't need a Sat Nav. Mastering the ring road was one of the proudest days of my life.

"Coventry is a beautiful place and we made sure we captured that in Home Time. The Memorial Park and the Canal Basin look stunning.

"We're not trying to capture all of life in Coventry through the series. Coventry is a very diverse city with lots of different people living lots of different lives. You couldn't possibly sum up the whole city through a small group of fictional characters."
