  • George Gallaccio is a British television producer, whose most prominent work was as producer of the BBC programme Miss Marple, based on the novels by Agatha Christie. He began his career at the BBC in the early-1970s working as a Production Unit Manager, essentially the budget manager of any given production. In this capacity he worked on several serials in the popular and long-running science-fiction series Doctor Who. In 1979 he was promoted to producer and oversaw the BBC Scotland supernatural drama series The Omega Factor, after which he was offered the producership of Doctor Who by BBC Drama's Head of Series & Serials Graeme MacDonald, but turned the role down. In the early-1980s, he produced the popular detective drama Bergerac, before moving onto the Miss Marple adaptations. In 1962 he married the actress Maureen Morris. The following year she gave birth to a daughter, the artist Anya Gallaccio.
