This evening marks the launch of ‘Cue to Cue’, a celebration of Julian Glover’s remarkable career. Told in Julian's own words, and illustrated with a plethora of rare images, this book tells the personal story behind what was seen by audiences, and the behind-the-scenes tales of some of the most successful films, TV shows and stage appearances of all time. Julian has been part of numerous international franchises such as Star Wars, James Bond, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter and Doctor Who, as well as prestigious stage work including many seasons with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre.
This evening includes a screening of one of Julian’s notable screen appearances, QUATERMASS AND THE PIT. This, one of Britain’s finest sci-fi films, based on Nigel Kneale’s script about the discovery of ancient alien craft beneath central London, boasts one of the most elaborate screenplays in British cinema. As boffins, army officers and politicians argue over a mysterious object unearthed at a London tube station, Kneale introduces and interweaves numerous narrative threads (scientific, mythic, historical, psychological, religious, etc) to intriguing and increasingly apocalyptic effect.
The screening will be followed by an ‘in conversation’ between Julian Glover and Gyles Brandreth, when they will discuss Julian’s long, diverse and illustrious career. There will then be the opportunity to meet Julian at an informal book signing in the River Room.
