Following the Second World War, Gielgud moved to BBC Television Drama as its head, although he was not as successful in this media as he had been in radio. He was a prolific writer and produced over twenty novels, a short story collection, nineteen stage plays, four screenplays and over forty radio plays. He also produced som non-fiction works.
