This Life was a BBC television drama that was screened on BBC2 and ran for two series in 1996 and 1997. The programme was produced by Jane Fallon.

The series centres around a group of law graduates who attempt to make a career for themselves while sharing a house in South London. The first series was not a great hit but generated a cult following. In the lead-up to the second series, the entire first series was repeated, helping to generate a critical buzz around the programme. This led to the second series to become a success with millions tuning in at the end of the series to discover the resolution to various plotlines. Plans for a third series were abandoned by the BBC. However, a one-off episode is scheduled to be screened at Christmas 2006.
