As a BBC and ATV producer Brian Tesler launched or developed the television careers of Roy Castle, Bob Monkhouse, Bruce Forsyth, Billy Cotton and Wilfred Pickles and produced shows built round such stars as Harry Secombe, Benny Hill, Max Bygraves, Johnnie Ray and Sammy Davis Jr.
As Director of Programmes at ABC and Thames he presided over a programme output ranging from Tempo to Opportunity Knocks, Candid Camera to Callan, Thank Your Lucky Stars to The World at War, and was responsible for the first British TV shows with Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee and Jack Benny.
At the climax of his career at LWT his company won more BAFTA, Prix Italia and Montreux Golden Rose Awards than any other ITV company and more Golden Rose Awards than the BBC.
It is our pleasure to have Brian talk to us as our special guest for this month’s Creative Networks as part of his national book launch tour.
