A British film writer-director and documentary maker, whose groundbreaking film Nighthawks (1978) was the first major piece of British gay cinema to receive an international release. The film was produced by Four Corners, which Peck started with three fellow London Film School graduates in 1973, and is still going today as a film learning, production and exhibition organisation. Peck would later co-found Team Pictures.
