BROADCASTERS have paid tribute to Innes Lloyd, the award-winning BBC drama producer who died recently. He had been suffering from cancer.

Lloyd produced drama for the Corporation for 25 years, ranging from early episodes of Dr Who to Andrew Davies' Is That You, Boy? and Don Shaw's Bomber Harris.

But he was perhaps best known for his work with Alan Bennett, which included 1982's Objects Of Affections season, 1983's An Englishman Abroad and last year's 102 Boulevard Haussmann.

In 1982 he was awarded the Royal Television Society's Silver Medal for his creative contribution to television.

At the time of his death Lloyd had just finished shooting A Question Of Attribution, the companion piece to An Englishman Abroad, which will be shown in BBC 1's Screen One season in October.

Mark Shivas, head of the BBC's drama group, said: "Innes embodied a tradition of the 'gentleman producer,' nurturing, guiding, quietly getting the best out of people. He was much loved and respected by those who worked with him and his death leaves a gaping hole in BBC television drama."

BBC1 controller Jonathan Powell added that Lloyd had "a real talent for making programmes of beacon-like quality."
