Derek Granger On Laurence Olivier: Derek Granger
Derek Granger is best known as the producer and co-writer of the iconic multi-award winning 1981 television drama Brideshead Revisited, but he was also a producer of Coronation Street in its early days, as well as being a journalist and scriptwriter. Derek’s lifetime experience in the world of film and television, and the friendships he has forged over some nine decades give him a unique insight into this world.
One such enduring friendship was with Laurence Olivier and his wife Joan Plowright. He worked closely with Olivier, first as literary consultant at the Old Vic in the early days of the newly formed National Theatre, and latterly at Granada where he co-produced with Olivier a series of television adaptations of famous British plays. Derek was given complete access to Olivier’s papers to write the definitive life of the greatest actor of the English-speaking world in the 20th century.
