Stephen Poliakoff, Shooting the Past, 1999

This screening included all three episodes of Stephen Poliakoff’s enthralling mini-series about a US property developer who tries to renovate an old London library, only to find the staff will do anything to protect its vast and priceless photographic collection. Timothy Spall and Lindsay Duncan star in what Screen Online call “a compelling mixture of nostalgic drama and polemic ... technically flawless and beautifully acted”

Dir. Stephen Poliakoff, BBC, UK, 1999, 182mins.
