The 24 Best British Directors of All Time - a good list.

24 Amma Asante
23 Tony Richardson
22 Andrea Arnold
21 Lynne Ramsay
20 John Schlesinger
19 Ken Russell
18 Nicolas Roeg
1 7Guy Ritchie
16 Ken Loach
15 Jim Sheridan
14 Alan Parker
13 Richard Attenborough
12 Mike Leigh
11 Steve McQueen
10 Danny Boyle
9 Michael Powell
8 Martin McDonough
7 Terry Gilliam
6 Sam Mendes
5 Ridley Scott
4 Christopher Nolan
3 Carol Reed
2 David Lean
1 Alfred Hitchcock

A few I don't know (Amma Asante, Andrea Arnold, Lynne Ramsay) but I will try and catch up on them
Obviously everyone will have a different order, but nice to see Ken between John Schlesinger and Nicolas Roeg
I thought Terry Gilliam didn't qualify, but I checked- though he was born in America he now has British nationality, so should certainly be on the list.
