Peter Graham Scott (27 October 1923 â€" 5 August 2007) was an English film producer, film director, film editor and screenwriter. One of the producers and directors who shaped British television drama in its formative years, Scott brought a background in film editing and directing to his work that helped to move the small screen out of an era of lifeless, studio-bound productions and towards programmes that owed more to cinema than to the stage.
