The Very Strange Story of… The Legendary Joe Meek (1991) From BBC's Documentary Series "Arena"


Documentary about the influential pop composer and record producer Joe Meek, who died in dramatic circumstances in 1967 after a bizarre childhood and a career, often controversial, which spanned the period from the mid-50s to the rise of the Beatles in the 60s. At the end of his life he was suffering from paranoid delusions that people were watching him through walls. Alan Lewens’ film charts an Ortonesque tale of post-war Britain.

Director: Alan Lewens.
Writer: John Repsch (book).
