Bruce Stewart

Bruce Stewart, former co-Chair of the Guild, has died at the age of 80. The Guardian has an obituary.
Stewart ...[wrote] more than 200 plays and scripts for radio, television and the stage. He had one play put on in the West End of London, at the Duchess Theatre in 1970. This was The Hallelujah Boy - with Alan Dobie in the title role - and it focused on worker priests in France. But Stewart was a versatile writer, who also tackled science fiction. His work included the children's television series Timeslip (1972) and a horror film, The Hand of Night (1966), a "vampire film without blood". He also contributed many episodes to The Onedin Line, Secret Army and Sherlock Holmes.
