Geoffrey Harold Posner (born 7 July 1949) is a British television producer and director.[1] Posner has directed and produced some of Britain's most successful comedy shows since the early 1980s.

Career

Starting off as a director on the satirical show Not the Nine O'Clock News, he also directed Revolting Women for BBC Manchester in 1981, a sketch show featuring amongst others Jeni Barnett and Linda Broughton, and in 1982 went on to direct the groundbreaking BBC2 anti-sitcom The Young Ones. Working also as an assistant producer on that show, he went on to produce in the same year the unshown pilot of the Rowan Atkinson historical sitcom Blackadder.[2] One of his biggest successes came in 1985, when he produced and directed the multi-award-winning Victoria Wood As Seen On TV, a sketch show written by (and starring) the popular comedian.[3]

Posner has since produced and directed some of the most popular British television comedies of the 1990s and 2000s. They include Harry Enfield's Television Programme, French & Saunders, Paul Calf's Video Diaries, and dinnerladies. More recently he was one of the TV directors covering the Live 8 concert. He was also producer of the second and third series of Little Britain.[2][4][5]

His shows have won six BAFTA awards and been nominated for another seven.[6]

Posner formed Pozzitive Television with fellow TV producer David Tyler in 1992.[7]

Posner also directed the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest in Birmingham and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert in 2012.

He was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Essex in 2016.[8]

Television productions

Other work

Posner also produced and directed a number of live events, including the Eurovision Song Contest in 1998, the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games, the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, and the Jubilee Gala 2013.
