Gareth Gwenlan OBE, who produced the pilot episode of First of the Summer Wine during his time as Head of Comedy at the BBC, has died aged 79.

BBC News outlined Gareth’s illustrious career in television comedy.

David Fenwick today recalled that Gareth, “was my Svengali and a gentle and subtle director and man.”

Although Gareth was unable to contribute to this website, he did send a message wishing me every success with the site.
