Peter Graham Scott

Peter Graham Scott (27 October 1923 – 5 August 2007) was an English film producer, film director, film editor and screenwriter. One of the producers and directors who shaped British television drama in its formative years, Scott brought a background in film editing and directing to his work that helped to move the small screen out of an era of lifeless, studio-bound productions and towards programmes that owed more to cinema than to the stage.


Scott was born in East Sheen, Surrey, but was brought up in Isleworth, Middlesex, where he attended acting classes at the Italia Conti Academy.

In 1950, he married Mimi Martell, and they had two sons (deceased) and two daughters.

In 1984, Scott won the Royal Television Society's Sir Ambrose Fleming Award for Outstanding Contribution to Television. In 1999, he published his memoirs, British Television: An Insider's History.

Scott died in Windlesham, Surrey, on 5 August 2007.
