Among Alan Clarke's earliest television works, George's Room (ITV, tx. 30/8/1967) was one of ten short dramas he directed for Rediffusion's Half Hour Story (ITV, 1967-68). It was written by Alun Owen, a key contributor to ABC's groundbreaking Armchair Theatre (1956-74) and screenwriter of The Beatles' film A Hard Day's Night (d. Richard Lester, 1965).
A young widow interviews a potential lodger. During the course of their conversation the woman reveals much about the unhealthy relationship she had with her dead husband. Essentially a talking heads piece and probably more notable for Owen's script than Clarke's direction, George's Room is nevertheless an early indication of Clarke's fascination with the darker side of masculinity.
