1So sorry and sad to hear of David's death. He was one of the really nice people of television. A very clever and talented producer and director, it was always a pleasure to work for him when he was producing. Blakes 7 (1978) would never have gone as bravely or successfully without David at the helm. A delight to be a co-director on the same or similar productions, and as his sometime-production manager I learned a great deal from him. He managed always to keep a wry sense of humor and proportion whilst doing excellent work. Not many achieve that. The business and the world will be a lesser place without him. (On David Maloney)
2I am sad that I was probably very difficult to work with. Directors have to follow their own dream but sometimes I wish I had done it a bit more diplomatically and politely. You have a choice as a director - do what you believe to be right - that which pleases you or try to please other people - producers et al. The former does not always make you friends and the latter does not make good productions. There is a line between the ideas of the producer and what a director can bring to the story. The good producers find directors who are creative and imaginative. When you let slip the dogs of war there is no knowing who they will bite - the inferior producers select directors who will toe the line, be really respectful and obey orders.
3Television has now grown up and on soaps the role of the director is primarily to point cameras. The speed and instant acting required today has taken much of the fun out of the work and many - particularly BBC soaps - are run by committee. Not sure if this is good or bad, but for young directors it is very sad.
4I would have paid to do the directing work that came my way - certainly it was a bit intimidating sometimes, very scary even, but it never was boring and I was allowed to experiment and sometimes to fail - the most exciting thing I can imagine.
5Television was growing at a rate and the creative side was run by people from the theatre or film industry. Directors in those days did the casting, were consulted during the writing process and had a freedom impossible today.

3He has now sold Bambola the yacht he sailed around the world making films with and has purchased Eloise - catamaran which he hopes will provide a more stable platform for his productions.
