The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
Receiving the Radio Industries Club of Scotland Personality of the Year Award 1978: for the Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
Scottish Television Programme Review 1978: 
Drama

The highlight of the year was 'The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie' shown on the full TV network in the first months of 1978. It was both a critical and popular success, the words of the critic of the 'Daily Express' perhaps summing it up best, 'I do not hesitate to predict that Miss Brodie is going to have the viewing millions grovelling at her feet'. 

Since then, Geraldine McEwan has collected awards for her performances from the 
Pye/Screen Writers' Guild Scheme, 
the 'TV Times', 
the Radio Industries Club of Scotland 
and the Guild of Broadcasting Journalists 
and the series earned a Finalist's Plaque in the International Emmy Awards in New York. 
In the last few weeks we have learned that it has been bought by the Public Broadcasting Service in the US.
