Danton's Death (Clarke, 1978): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 8.40pm

This TV play screeniong is part of the complete Alan Clarke retrospective at BFI Southbank. You can find all the details here.  

Here is the BFI introduction:
A passionate fan of Georg B├╝chner’s Woyzeck, Clarke was invited by the BBC to mount the playwright’s other masterwork, and produced this thoughtful adaptation with Stuart Griffiths. Designer Stuart Walker provided elegant studio sets, framed by Clarke with long lenses for a chilly tableaux effect. Norman Rodway and Ian Richardson excel as the feuding Danton and Robespierre.
