Cover blurb:
Robert Banks Stewart is one of Britain’s most legendary writer/producers.

Credited with breaking the mould of early UK thrillers with ground-breaking series such as Shoestring and Bergerac, he purposely set them away from the usual easy, endlessly grim metropolitan street backgrounds derived from BBC Radio, instead exploiting different locations — like the West Country and the Channel Island of Jersey. He also cleverly cast new actors such as John Nettles, Trevor Eve, Greta Scaachi and Catherine Zeta-Jones, rather than established stars. However, he also featured film veterans like Terence Alexander and Michael Medwin in regular roles.

Writing, adapting and producing — with what was called ‘the touch’ — Robert Banks Stewart was also responsible for many more hit television series, among them the initial productions of The Darling Buds of May and Lovejoy.

As a writer, he provided scripts for The Avengers, Doctor Who, The Sweeney, Public Eye, Dr Finlay’s Casebook and many others.

This memoir, spanning five decades, will fascinate even the most casual viewer. The author has penned a host of behind-the-scenes anecdotes, most of them hitherto untold, plus descriptions of his considerable work experiences, with refreshing candour (success and failures) and delightful humour.
