SF:UK - How British Science Fiction Changed The World (2001)

Image

An excellent and long overdue look at the history of British science fiction in print, comics, film and television. British science fiction has a long and distinguished history. This series plots the history of the genre, examining the way the tropes, ideas and themes have been treated by British writers, artists and film-makers. Contains interviews with Nigel Kneale, Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Ian M Banks & others broadcast on Channel 4 in 2001. Naturally, it was buried away in a graveyard slot when it deserved a much wider audience.
