U.K. pays tribute to Graham King

Producer honored in New Year's awards list

Producer Graham King and thesp Patrick Stewart are among industryites honored in Blighty’s New Year’s Honors List while helmer Peter Jackson was similarly lauded by his homeland, New Zealand.

Jonnie Turpie, founder and director of Maverick Television, was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to international trade.
