(Richard Eyre; artistic director of the Royal National Theatre between 1988 and 1997. After this, he took something of a sabbatical from the film world, concentrating instead on the stage - and specifically, his duties at the National. A self-confessed workaholic. Eyre returned to the big screen in 2001 with the acclaimed Iris, a self-written adaptation of John Bayley's memoirs of his late wife, the novelist Iris Murdoch. Awarded a CBE in 1992, Eyre was knighted five years later. He has also received The Laurence Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement, and has served as a governor of the BBC)
