This chapter explores the biographical sketch of Francis Troy Kennedy Martin, who was born on Bute, an island on the Clyde, on the west coast of Scotland, on 15 February 1932. It provides a brief description of the route by which Troy Kennedy Martin arrived at his name. In 1964, Kennedy Martin wrote his first scripts for an ITV company including the first of six episodes for Redcap, an ABC Television series about the military police. Two years later, Kennedy Martin was involved with another BBC drama documentary when he assisted Andy McNab with the dramatisation of his book, Bravo Two Zero. Troy and Ian Kennedy Martin were ranked twenty-seventh in a poll of the fifty most influential figures in British television. Troy Kennedy Martin's contribution to British television extends far beyond these three programmes.
