Alan Clarke at the BBC - Volume 2: Disruption
  • Description

    “He radiated with energy. He made you feel confident.

    That anything was possible. You could try anything with Alan.”

    Gary Oldman (The Firm, Leon, Bram Stoker’s Dracula)

     

    Although probably best remembered for the controversial and groundbreaking dramas Scum, Made in Britain and The Firm, the breadth of Alan Clarke’s radical, political, innovative, inspirational work, along with his influence on generations of filmmakers, such as Gus Van Sant, Paul Greengrass, Andrea Arnold, Harmony Korine, Clio Barnard, Shane Meadows, should see him rightly regarded as one of Britain’s greatest ever filmmaking talents.

    This long-overdue box set brings together all of the surviving stand-alone BBC TV dramas that Alan Clarke directed between 1978-1989, including such neglected classics as Baal (starring David Bowie), Contact, Road and Christine, and also includes the first ever presentation of Clarke’s original Director’s Cut of The Firm, assembled from his personal answer print, discovered in 2015.

    Extensive extras include David Leland introductions, extracts from BBC discussion show Open Air, newly-produced documentaries and audio commentaries and material from Clarke’s previously-unseen documentary Bukovsky (1977).

    Extras:

    • All filmed productions newly remastered in HD
    • All VT productions newly remastered in SD
    • Alan Clarke: Out of His Own Light (2016): multi-part documentary, featuring actors, writers and producers
    • Open Air discussions on Road and Elephant
    • Bukovsky (1977): material from Alan Clarke’s unbroadcast documentary
    • David Leland introductions to Contact, Road and The Firm
    • Newly recorded audio commentary with Sean Chapman on Contact
    • Extensive booklet with new essays by writers including Richard Kelly, Lizzie Francke, Nick James, Nick Wrigley, Ashley Clark and Kaleem Aftab, with an introduction by Danny Leigh; and full credits

    Awards and Reviews:

    • 1973 Nominated BAFTA, To Encourage the Others
    • 1990 Winner Prix Europa for TV Fiction, The Firm
