“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).
