||The present invention concerns a polyethylene composition particularly suitable for film blowing. The invention also concerns a process for the production thereof. The composition comprises a low molecular weight portion having a density of more than 960 Kg/m<3> and a high molecular weight portion. The polyethylene composition has a density of about 925-940 Kg/m<3> and a melt flow rate in the range of MFR21 from 5 to 40 g/10 min. A polyethylene film blown from the polyethylene composition exhibits a tensile strength at yield in transverse direction at least 15 MPa, a 1 % secant modulus in machine direction at least 300 MPa and in transverse direction at least 400 MPa, and a dart drop of at least 5 g/ mu m.
