Broken Morning (ITV1 2003, Ciaran Hinds, Steven Berkoff)

Broken Morning was a South Bank Show drama presentation about playwright and Nobel prize winner, Albert Camus, who died in a car crash on a country road in 1960. The drama starts from that moment and tells a fictional account of what might have followed had he not died as he spends time in the company of a journalist doing a story about him while he is directing a movie.

Billed simply as “Albert Camus” in some listings magazines but had the on-screen title as shown above.
