  1. Very sad to hear this . Yet another one of our finest itc directors has passed.
    Space 1999 has always been what i,ve considered to be Gerry and Sylvias
    greatest achievement in television .
    Ray,s finest work on Space 1999 will always be , to me personally , END OF ETERNITY
    & THE TROUBLED SPIRIT . Boy , did he know how to create incredible camera angles
    and very eerie and spooky moments in these two masterpiece episodes .
    Believe me when i say Space 1999 would have been quite different if you hadnt worked on it.
