Jeremy Isaacs Sir JEREMY ISAACS 1932- ; British television producer (Granada, Rediffusion, BBC) and executive, first chief executive of Channel Four Television (1981-1987)
There is one trend in programming that independent production will accelerate and should be slowed—that is the trend to pay too much regard to the lure of overseas sales, a siren song that can drive good men bonkers. The best of British TV has always been made for our own audience. I hope that in the 1980s, those who make our programme choices will not be too easily tempted by the prospect of profit overseas. MacTaggart Lecture, Edinburgh Television Festival, September 1979
