TV Organization, The (ITV 1972 Donald Sinden, Peter Egan) Published 2 years ago on September 18, 2016 Drama series The Organization was all about the plotting and backbiting amongst the PR Department of the Greatrick Organisation which is still ruled by the iron hand of the (never seen) chairman who created it. Peter Egan played the handsome and ambitious newly arrived Richard Pershore who was determined to get to the top. Bernard Hepton was press officer Rodney Spurling who always seemed to be in Chairman’s firing line. Meanwhile Donald Sinden was David Pulman, head of public relations. Everyone is terrified of the Chairman (who is never seen but makes a habit of early morning or late night phone calls at home to his staff, just to tell them off) but it’s Eve (who is in Editor of the in-house magazine) who is the real player. The fabulous scripts by Philip Mackie (he was a deserved winner of the writers guild award 1973 award for best drama series for this show) are archly played by the fabulous cast. production details UK / ITV – Yorkshire TV / 7×60 minute episodes / Broadcast Sunday 16 April – 28 May 1972 Writer: Philip Mackie / Executive Producer: Peter Willes / Director: James Ormerod cast DONALD SINDEN as David Pullman ANTON RODGERS as Peter Frame PETER EGAN as Richard Pershore BERNARD HEPTON as Rodney Spurling PHILIP STONE as Chantry JOHN NETTLETON as Blount PATRICIA MAYNARD as Chantry’s Secretary MEL MARTIN as Jenny ELAINE TAYLOR as Veronica SHARON MUGHAN as Rosemary BETH MORRIS as Heather NORMAN BIRD as Ken Grist JO KENDALL as Daphne THE EPISODES 16 April – 28 May 1972 1.
