The Raggle Snatchers

Writer: Emily Isaacs

Director: Jo Southwell

Diamond Alice is a tv series concept and pilot script, titled 'The Hoister's Code', from a story world created by Emily Isaacs based on the real gang members.


It's an exciting biopic that centres around feminism, the extremes of poverty that lived across the river from the Houses of Parliament, and a whirlwind drama about family, loss, social mobility, inequality and justice.

'The Raggle Snatchers is a separate series of documentary shorts on the gang.

Both projects have recently been optioned by Aston Productions, the latter as a co-pro with SWP, so for more information, on the pilot script, please contact them here.
