The listing shows the television programmes and three cinema films directed by Alan Clarke between 1967 and 1989. Information is given about the play strand or series in which each production appeared, the production company which made it and the broadcaster which transmitted (tx) it. To reflect the television climate of the time, ITV regional transmissions are included. I have excluded repeat transmissions for reasons of space (although the bibliography contains information on BBC2's tribute season). Writers (w.) are indicated, as are producers (prod.). Because this book is about a director, this listing differs from others in the series: script editors are not listed, but cast members are, as are designers (des.) and (only in productions made entirely on film) film cameramen or directors of photography (DoP), who play a crucial role in the realisation of a director's vision. I have indicated commercial availability, and where recordings are known to be lost from the archives. Corrections are welcomed for any future edition.
