More on Grierson here from the Grierson Trust. Among his many achievements, John Grierson established the National Film Board of Canada during World War II, and served as UNESCO's first Director of Mass Communications and Public Information in 1947. Throughout his long career, he was in some way responsible for the production of well over 1000 films and television programmes. There is an annual award given at the BFi each autumn during the London film festival.
