He played a role in founding the National Film Finance Corporation (NFFC) in 1948 and in the 1950s became managing director of Group 3, a government-backed production venture whose first film, Judgment Deferred (1951), he produced and directed. His final film as director was the comedy western Ramsbottom Rides Again (1956) featuring another music hall stalwart, Arthur Askey. Baxter remains a somewhat unique figure of his time, whose continuing commitment to populist comedy and socially relevant drama made him a champion of working-class culture and a potent voice for the socially deprived.

His appearance in skintight black leather is more than enough to turn the head of John Mills’s repressed Catholic priest. From the early 1960s Baker began to work on television and directed a number of episodes for some of the most popular and influential adventure series of the period, including The Avengers, The Saint, The Champions and Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased).
