With classic clips and rare photographs from his family’s private
collection, Tyler Butterworth relates the extraordinary true story of
his father’s war years, his time in the notorious POW camp Stalag Luft
III, and early theatrical experiences which directly led to his success
as a Carry On star.
Peter’s successful career in film and television ran alongside that
of his impressionist wife, Janet Brown. Her career really blossomed in
1979, the year Peter died and also the year Mrs Thatcher became Prime
Minister. Using personal photographs and television clips, Tyler will
shed light on some of the more personal moments in this shared life of
show biz, which culminated in them both individually being given the This Is Your Life treatment, quite possibly a unique accolade for a married couple in any walk of life.
Tyler Butterworth followed his parents into the theatre and spent twenty five years as an actor appearing in many television programmes including The Darling Buds of May (1992), Rumpole of the Bailey (1991), Bergerac (1998), Last of the Summer Wine (2008) and Casualty (1986 and 2002). He is now an audio producer, creating audio guides to cities round the world for private clients.
After the Q&A Tyler will take part in a meet and greet with the audience and a paid autograph signing.
