Description

This is a black and white photo of the English director and producer John Warrington with festival director Dermot Breen. The two are shown in conversation and an animated Warrington, wearing a belted mackintosh-style jacket, has his hand raised as he makes his point. While Breen, cigarette in mouth and pen in hand, looks up to Warrington as he speaks.

John Warrington (1916-1998) was a BBC producer and director known for The Sky Larks (1958), The Men from Room 13 (1959) and Silent Evidence (1962). He was a producer for the BBC series The Grove Family (1957-1957) which was created by Roland Pertwee and Michael Pertwee, who also came to the film festival during the 1970s. Much-loved, in its day, The Grove Family, named after the BBC Lime Grove Studios, is generally regarded as the first British TV soap opera. We note that Dermot Breen died soon after this photo, dated 1978, was taken.
