Tony Garnett: The Day The Music Died- A Life Lived Behind The Lens

A brilliantly evocative portrait of working class life in Birmingham in the Forties and Fifties, and of leftist London in the swinging Sixties and Seventies, and a wry look at the harsh realities of working in British television and in Hollywood.

Tony Garnett – working class hero, socialist revolutionary and ultimately Hollywood producer – is responsible for some of the most memorable television to appear on our screens. Up The Junction; Cathy Come Home; This Life – amongst others were landmark dramas that changed the way television was made and, in some cases, changed society. He pioneered the gritty social realism in TV drama that we now take for granted, and the notion that politically aware work can be both compelling and help effect real change.
