John Glen started off in the film industry as a messenger boy in 1945.  By the late 1940s, he was working in the visual and sound editorial departments of Shepperton Studios for films being made by Alexander Korda such as The Third Man and The Wooden Horse. Swiftly moving up the ranks, Glen made his picture editorial debut for a documentary series entitled Chemistry for Six Forms in 1961 and his directorial debut on the TV series Man in a Suitcase in 1968, directing the episode Somebody Loses, Somebody... Wins?.

During the 1960s and 70s, John served as film editor and second unit director on a number of prolific films. It was during this time in which Glen performed these duties on three James Bond films: On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Moonraker (1979).

After the release of Moonraker, John was offered the chance to direct and went on to helm five consecutive Bond films in the 1980s:  For Your Eyes Only (1981), Octopussy (1983), A View to a Kill (1985), The Living Daylights (1987) and Licence to Kill (1989)

Post-Bond John continued directing other films including Christopher Columbus: The Discovery (1992) and The Point Men (2001). He also directed episodes of the television series Space Precinct.

In 2001, he published his memoir For My Eyes Only.
