Greenstone’s ‘Industry Champion’


Greenstone TV founder and managing director John Harris is this year’s Screen Production and Development Association / ONFILM Industry Champion. At the presentation of the lifetime achievement award he described his love-hate relationship with the industry, in which one had to be obsessive to survive – which often took a toll on families. He paid tribute to his own family and to his management team for their support over many years.

Harris said that the award, far from persuading him to step down, encouraged him to want to continue in the television industry “for a few more years yet”.
