at BFI Southbank, London.

I thought I’d let you know about some upcoming screenings at the BFI Southbank, London of TV films I scored in the 70s. They’re being shown as part of this season celebrating the work of the highly influential producer Tara Prem:

Tara Prem: Representing the Unseen 

“The career of Tara Prem, one of the first Asians to work in mainstream British TV, spans three decades. Her vitally important work at BBC Birmingham cemented her growing reputation, challenging the status quo and supporting stories of under- represented people in Britain. 

She championed diverse talent, working with writers such as Michael Abbensetts and actors Norman Beaton, Carmen Munroe and Dev Sagoo, as well as giving early career breaks to Toyah Willcox, Phil Daniels and Julie Walters. Join us in this celebration of her work.” [British Film Institute]
