In conversation with one of the legends of British Cinema. Multi-award-winning film producer Lord David Puttnam reveals the stories behind some of his greatest movies – including Chariots of Fire, The Mission, The Killing Fields, Midnight Express and Local Hero. Using excerpts from these films, for which he has received numerous Academy Awards, BAFTA’s and the Palme D’Or in Cannes, he describes how his career took him from 30 years in the Hollywood-dominated film industry to 24 years in Westminster, where he shaped policy in the areas of Media Ownership, Climate Change, Education, Disinformation and Online Safety.
