Victor Glynn, veteran film and television producer and writer, will discuss his amazing career with Tony Diggle.
Victor is a film and television producer and writer. After some years at the BBC World Service, he worked at a wide range of theatres as a publicist. He co-produced a number of plays at the Edinburgh Fringe and also “Here’s a Funny Thing”, a play about Max Miller at the Fortune Theatre in London in 1982. He maintained his involvement in theatre as a Director of the English Shakespeare Company from its inception in 1986 under the joint artistic direction of Michael Bogdanov and Michael Pennington.
In 1982 he started producing independent films including Jack Gold’s feature “The Chain” starring Warren Mitchell. From 1984 until 1996 he was with Portman Productions, later the Portman Zenith Group, for the last nine years as Chief Executive. The Group was probably best known as the producer of “Inspector Morse”. Also during this period he co-produced Mike Leigh’s film “The Short and Curlies”, and co-developed the TV series “Home and Away”.
Since 2003 he has been an executive producer and production or script consultant to a number of major production companies and commercial brands.
Most recently, he co-produced with his son Phin and Georgia Tennant, the television comedy series “Staged” set during the Covid-19 pandemic and starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen.
