Screen Two was a British television anthology drama series, produced by the BBC and transmitted on BBC2 from 1985 to 1994.

Following the demise of the BBC's Play for Today, which ran from 1970 to 1984, producer Kenith Trodd was asked to formulate a new series of one-off television dramas. However, while Play For Today's style had been a largely studio-based form of theatre on television, the new series was shot entirely on film. This was an attempt by the BBC to repeat the success of Channel 4's television films, many of which had been released in cinemas.

From 1989 to 1993 a companion series, Screen One, was broadcast on the more mainstream BBC1. After almost a decade Screen Two came to an end as the BBC moved its attentions away from expensive single dramas and concentrated production on series and serials instead.
