But for one feature film, British producer-director Nigel Finch spent his entire career working for BBC television. He joined the venerable network in the 1970s as a researcher and became an editor and director of the web's outstanding arts/music anthology program Arena. Finch directed two highly influential episodes of the series: "The Private Life of the Ford Cortina," and "My Way," both of which helped change the way the network approached and presented pop culture. He also directed a few miniseries, notably The Lost Language of Cranes (1992). When he succumbed to complications from AIDS, Finch was putting the finishing touches on his feature-film debut, Stonewall, a gripping docudrama account of events leading up to a riot between drag queens and police in 1969 New York (the event is credited with starting the Gay Pride movement).
