Nigel Kneale

Thinking about stone, about the smooth and the rough, about the digital and the analogue and cutting things up has sent me down a Nigel Kneale route. Here’s a link to The Stone Tape (1972) – everyone raves but it’s just too overwrought for me, and I like a bit of Bronte, as you know.

Here’s a link to a BBC Timeshift on Kneale – worth it for the home-made alien hands alone. And I would have loved to have seen the lost play The Road.

And last but of course not ever least is personal fav. Leonard Rossiter in The Year of the Sex Olympics (1968). I once painted the back of a leather jacket with a portrait of Rossiter. Off to look it out…
