ABOUT THIS EPISODE

“I did think - when I was young and arrogant - that we could make a film and change the world, and of course you can’t. What it might do though is change people’s consciousness so that they care more, understand more and demand political change. That’s what you can do.”
Tony Garnett is a British TV legend. Together with Ken Loach he made era defining, agenda setting social drama like Cathy Come Home, Up The Junction and Kes.
A famously private man, Tony has shied away from the press and giving interviews, until now. He’s decided it’s time, in his eighties, to open up and write a memoir, The Day The Music Died. Partly to process the devastating way his parents died within just weeks of one another when he was only five years old but also to lift the lid on the secrets of a ground breaking career.
Tony Garnett is an incredibly wise man, so press play and prepare to soak up a little of that wisdom as he talks about his heroes and inspirations on Saints of Somewhere.
