Abstract

To claim authority, one must exercise it. No-one I have encountered in a working life spent in television exercised it more willingly than my first boss, Sidney L. Bernstein. Now ennobled, Bernstein was known then to the staff at Granada as Mr Sidney, distinguishing him from his able but less flamboyant brother Mr Cecil, or, more directly and succinctly, as SLB. Sidney Bernstein was then, this was 1958, I think Chairman and Joint Managing Director of Granada Television. Titles, offices, chains of executive command were irrelevances. He ran the company. Authority was vested in one man, and we knew it.
