The definitive Nigel Kneale,
This review is from: Into the Unknown: The Fantastic Life of Nigel Kneale (Paperback)
Like the majority of people I had only heard of Nigel Kneale due to Quatermass, the TV show whose impact on the nation when it hit the screen was stellar and whose influence on TV since is beyond question.
And if Quatermass was the only work Nigel Kneale had ever done he would be worthy of the highest praise, but as this book illustrates Quatermass was just the tip of the iceberg.
This book takes us through all of Kneale's work, I won't list it all here it's to numerous, but I particularly enjoyed the insights into his early days at the fledgling BBCTV and his partnership with Rudolph Cartier which brought 1984 to the small screen.
I recommend you buy this book, you will be amazed at the body of work Nigel Kneale has created, adapted and influenced.
