Euston Films

Euston Films
   Euston films was founded as a subsidiary of Thames TV in March 1971. Its initial forays into television drama were one-hour plays, and it was one of these, Regan (1974), that led to the idea of full-length filmed serials. Regan became the basis for one of the 1970s’ most loved and vilified television series, The Sweeney. Further popular shows followed, including Minder, Out, Fox and Widows. Euston soon gained a reputation as a producer of gritty drama, as well as pioneering the use of 16mm filming for television. Later series, such as Reilly, Ace of Spies and The Flame Trees of Thika, enhanced the company’s reputation as one of the foremost British drama production teams.
