When Colin Welland brandished his Oscar in 1982 and announced 'The British are coming!', many people expected a new wave of British talent to make a dent in Hollywood. The talent arrived - directors like
Alan Parker , and Adrian Lynne , producers like David Puttnam and John Daly of Hemdale and writers like James Dearden (Fatal Attraction). But have they made a British dent in Hollywood's sensibility? Or are they aesthetically naturalised Americans?
Nigel Andrews reports.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
