One of the seminal, surreal thrillers of the late 70s, we’re delighted to be joined by writer/creator Philip Martin in conversation with the BFI’s Dick Fiddy to celebrate 40 years of Gangsters.

Philip will also be reading a number of extracts of his new Gangsters Season 2 novelisation, comparing them to the scenes as presented with very limited advance stock of his new Gangsters book on sale courtesy of his publishers Candy Jar.
