DENNIS POTTER The Singing Detective [1986]

Most of The Singing Detective is available on Youtube. For some reason the 6 part series peters out at part 6. But the final section of part 6 can be seen in other versions.

A website called the British Film Resource – no idea who has produced it – has a fairly detailed hypertexty analysis of The Singing Detective, which could be a starting point after the wiki of course.
