This chapter portrays Clarke's ‘voice’ as a filmmaker, and reveals the ‘voices’ that his productions articulated. It discusses Clarke's interrogations relating to the state and media discourses within the discursive framework of academic writing, and acknowledges the extent to which these voices have been expressed latently. The way that Clarke articulates the ‘political dilemma’ is also discussed. The Thatcherite discourses, which Clarke documented, ultimately silenced the kind of drama with which he was associated. Eventually, directors gained more influence than writers, as drama shifted to a more visual form of storytelling. Finally, the chapter uses analytical tools to unpick Clarke's contribution to their style and form, and to attempt to understand their effects. Clarke died on 24 July 1990. Many of his collaborators and admirers have argued that his technique of making radical plays died with him.,
