This chapter focusses on Meadows' television work, more specifically his television continuations of the film This is England with the Channel Four series This is England '86 and This is England '88. It discusses the series as both ‘event television’ and youth drama, their relationship with contemporaneous television dramas such as Shameless and Skins as well as the earlier work of television directors including Alan Clarke and Ken Loach. The chapter also foregrounds the importance of memory, not only personal but also historical and televisual, to the This is England corpus.

Keywords:   This is England 86, Thus is England 88, Channel Four, Seriality, Television, Shameless, Skins, Alan Clarke, Ken Loach, memory
