Tony Garnett’s 60 year career has encompassed theatre, TV and film as both an actor and producer. He has worked with some of the leading directors of the past half century, including Ken Loach, Mike Leigh and Roland Joffe as the producer of ground-breaking programmes such as Cathy Come Home and Up the Junction. His critically acclaimed autobiography The Day The Music Died was published in 2016 and provides a fascinating memoir of post-war British television as well as providing a vivid social history.

Tony’s moving story demonstrates how he came to terms with unimaginable tragedy to become one of the most respected figures in the media industry, setting the gold standard for TV drama and producing some of the most iconic and controversial moments in BBC history. Tony will be in conversation with QUAD’s CEO, Adam Buss.
