BROCK Jeremy


British writer and director

Profession: Writer



Jeremy Brock is a British writer and director whose works include the screenplays Mrs Brown, Driving Lessons, The Last King of Scotland, Charlotte Gray, and The Eagle. Brock has also written two plays for the Hampstead downstairs theatre.

Early life

He was born in Malvern, Worcestershire. He had an older brother (born 1952) and sister (born 1954).

He studied drama at the University of Bristol, where he met Paul Unwin in 1979.


His awards include the Evening Standard award for Mrs. Brown. Driving Lessons was entered into the 28th Moscow International Film Festival, where it won the Special Jury Prize. In 2007, he received the BAFTA award for best-adapted screenplay for The Last King of Scotland, co-written with Peter Morgan.


He is the co-creator of Casualty with Paul Unwin. They created Casualty in reaction to what they saw as a "Thatcherite attack on our National Health Service", and that in 1985, "it felt like all that good work was about to be dismantled". Both Unwin and Brock had a shared love of M*A*S*H. The A&E department that they created was to be their "frontline in the battle for the soul of the NHS". They wanted to create something less cosy than the 1970s Angels. Much of their knowledge came from Peter Salt of Bristol Royal Infirmary. The first series owed much to the Welsh producer Geraint Morris.

5 Persons pays special attention to the activities of famous people: politicians, officials, businessmen, bankers, cultural and sports figures. Their opinion largely determines the development of the political, social and economic life of England and the United Kingdom. The section is constantly edited by our journalists for the relevance of the information. Here you can find information about the CEOs and presidents of top companies in England, officials and public figures who play a key role in the development of the region.
The goal of the project is to create a comfortable information space for all market participants, as well as to introduce the readership to business people in England.
We have created an impressive database of people in England, which contains information about the career path, education and other important information about a person.
Thanks to the automatic calculation of the number of mentions of a person in the news sections "English news" and "English press releases", a rating of the popularity and influence of persons is formed on the portal. The team monitors changes in the rating and encourages project participants for their success. In general, the rating of participants is based on an in-depth analysis of the activity of PR services of famous people, and also reflects the qualitative state of the information field formed by the media and press services around the organization.
"Business people of England" is a project about people who, with their ideas, words and actions, have a great influence on the development and prosperity of England.
