Talking Heads is a series of dramatic monologues written for BBC television by British playwright Alan Bennett. The first series was broadcast on BBC One in 1988, and adapted for radio on BBC Radio 4 in 1991. A second series was broadcast on BBC Two in 1998. They have since been included on the A-level and GCSE English Literature syllabus. Some episodes aired on PBS in the United States as part of its Masterpiece Theatre programme.
