' David Puttnam is one of the most important film producers in the world,' claims film director Michael Apted.
Certainly since the success of Oscar-winning Chariots of Fire, he has emerged as the spokesman for - and some would say saviour of - the ailing British film industry. But will Local Hero, the new film he has just finished with director Bill Forsyth , maintain Puttnam's reputation as the producer with the golden touch?
In the first full-length television profile, Puttnam talks frankly about his own films and career, and has some hard-hitting things to say about the film and television industry in this country - and their future.
Also appearing are Ray Connolly Alan Parker , Michael Apted and Michael White
