The Old Un wishes a happy 100th birthday to legendary TV producer Derek Granger on April 23rd.

He is best known for his peerless Granada production of Brideshead Revisited (1981). His TV career goes all the way back to producing Coronation Street in 1961. Before that, he was a journalist and drama critic of the Financial Times, where he founded its arts pages.

What a packed century of a life!
