Tony Garnett was born in Birmingham and went on to produce seminal dramas such as Up the Junction and Cathy Come Home, alongside a long working partnership with Ken Loach. In the 1990s he became Chair of World Productions where he oversaw the productions of Between the Lines and This Life.
Surprisingly Tony Garnett never worked at BBC Pebble Mill!
