Now the dust has settled from last year’s release of Mr Turner, we take a look at Mike Leigh’s illustrious film directing career that spans more than forty years, from the early BBC television work such as Nuts In May and Abigail’s Party, through to the current day.

We’ll examine what typifies the idea of a film ‘devised by’ Mike Leigh, the themes, actors and acting styles, the characterisation and aspects of comedy and tragedy that mark his territory.
