Fifty years ago, a series by scriptwriter Nigel Kneale aired on BBC TV. Titled Quatermass, it was a vast success, and the big-screen adaptation that followed helped place Hammer Films on the international map.
Quatermass was but the tip of the iceberg. Kneale's work stands amongst the most original in the history of the medium. Blending elements of horror and science fiction with intelligent, powerful drama, it continues to influence generations of admirers, including John Carpenter, Dan O'Bannon, Steven Spielberg, and many others.
This book is the first to examine the work of Kneale, a key figure in popular culture, yet a vastly underrated one. It assesses Kneale's pioneering nature, drawing on interviews with major collaborators and high-profile fans-as well as Kneale himself.
L'autore: A prolific writer and reviewer, Andy Murray programmes the annual Darkness Over Britain' screenings at Manchester's Cornerhouse, and was consultant to the recent BBC4 documentary The Kneale Tapes. He completed an MA in Scriptwriting at Salford University in 2003.
