Alan Moore: Don’t Let Me Die in Black and White

Filmed in 1993, shortly before Alan’s 40th birthday, this film was made during the period in which Alan was conducting research into the history of Northampton for the book ‘Voice of the Fire’. Nothing was scripted, and there were no second takes. This edit of the film was made in 2000, and was shown to Sara Woodford at Id World, who commissioned the film ‘Comic Tales with Alan Moore’ for Channel 4. The title of the film comes from a line in Alan’s song, ‘Old Gangsters Never Die’ (the B side of ‘Sinister Ducks’) – “If I die, and god knows I might, don’t let me die in black and white.”
