Blackeyes is a BBC television miniseries first broadcast in 1989, written and directed by Dennis Potter based on his own novel of the same name.

Broadcast as four 50-minute episodes, first screened weekly from 29 November 1989 to 20 December 1989 on Britain's BBC2 channel,[1] Blackeyes starred Gina Bellman as the title character, an attractive model, with Michael Gough in a key role as her uncle.

Potter described the series' theme as the objectification of "young and attractive women as consumer goods in a way that brutalizes both sexes".[2]
