John Hopkins remembered

On the eve of a retrospective at the National Film Theatre, Alan Plater in The Guardian remembers TV scriptwriter John Hopkins.
Hopkins was way ahead of the game in writing about dysfunctional families; about racism, in both Z Cars and his 1965 play Fable; about sexuality, in Horror of Darkness, also in 1965, starring Nicol Williamson and Glenda Jackson; and about police brutality, in his stage play, This Story of Yours.
