Author Biography - Phil Redmond

Phil Redmond CBE is a well-known television producer and screenwriter. He grew up in Huyton and attended St Kevin's Comprehensive School before gaining a Social Studies Degree from Liverpool University. He began writing scripts for the TV sitcoms such as The Squirrels before using his own experience of comprehensive schools to come up with the idea for Grange Hill. The programme was aired on BBC One from 1978 - 2008 and dealt with many of the challenges facing teenagers at high school. Redmond went on to create the soap Brookside, which was based around the lives of the residents of Brookside Close, Liverpool, and was aired on Channel 4 between 1982 and 2003. Redmond also developed the teen soap Hollyoaks which is now one of the most established soap operas on UK television. Redmond was awarded a CBE in 2004 in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to drama.
