This chapter gives an overview of Tony Garnett and his career. His work was diverse, in terms of both programme format and subject matter, and his company produced work for all the terrestrial channels. Garnett adopted two separate but connected roles within World Productions, that of head of the company, responsible to Heyman and the parent company, and that of executive producer for specific projects. In the former role, he supported others and defined a policy for the company not according to a manifesto but as a diverse body of work; in the latter, he assumed overall responsibility for a limited range of projects, to which he was particularly connected. The chapter briefly discusses broadcasting in the Thatcherite and post-Thatcher eras, working with the BBC and new technologies and new working practices. Garnett remained a socialist, and engaged with politics, intellectually and creatively.
