Who is Philip Saville?
During the 1960s he directed television plays, such as Harold Pinter's A Night Out for ABC's Armchair Theatre anthology series, and Madhouse on Castle Street for the BBC. The later production was the first acting appearance of the folk singer Bob Dylan, whom Saville had flown over specifically to take part in the play.
He also directed a masterclass studio in London specializing in dramatic improvisation. Saville's documentary on Harold Pinter Pinter's Progress for Sundance international television channels and UK's Sky Arts features numerous interviews with associates of the Nobel Prize winning playwright.
