His vast filmography of over one hundred films ranges from early works with The Beatles, Cream, Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa (200 Motels), to the famous portraits with and about Walton, Britten, Stravinsky, Maria Callas, John Osborne, Margot Fonteyn and Menuhin. He has collected over 40 international prizes for his work including 12 Gold Medals at the New York Film & Television Festival, as well as numerous BAFTA (British Academy of Film & Television) and EMMY nominations and awards. He is also the only person to have won television's most coveted award, the Prix Italia, twice. Palmer achieved notoriety with this his first major film, All My Loving, which also was the first British TV documentary to be networked in the United States.
"I have no doubt that wherever it is shown the film will win professional acclaim. Remarkable for its virtuosity, its impact is inescapable. No wonder it has been the subject of passionate argument in the corridors of the BBC for months." - Stuart Hood, former Controller of Programmes, BBC TELEVISION
"With hideous, clamorous force, Tony Palmer's film about the pop world burst out of the TV screen last night - a disturbing piece of television ... which no parent could afford to miss. It was certainly not a film which will die, a psychedelic experience which 10 years from now will be the definitive document of its time. How often does TV really make you sit on the edge of your chair? - James Thomas, DAILY EXPRESS
"...Magnificent - honest, accurate, unbiased and totally frank. As a comment on today, it was horrific and powerful, and as a protest it was stunning. 'All My Loving' showed us all the horror of war."
- Vicki Wickham, DISC & MUSIC ECHO
Tony Palmer will set out on a promotional tour of the film in Fall of 2007. He'll be attending events such as Beatlefest, etc. and will be available for interviews.
