Short film marks anniversary of Barry Gray’s death

The 30th anniversary of the death of composer Barry Gray has been marked by the release of a short film produced by Len Davies and Ralph Titterton of The Barry Gray Archive.

Created from the composer’s personal collection of home movies, Len Davies has edited a short film that portrays the character of the man who was Barry Gray. Together with the soundtrack of the March for Thunderbirds, it is hoped that this will be a fitting tribute to mark the 30th anniversary of his death on 26th April 1984.

First screened during the 2008 Barry Gray Centenary Concert, this will be the first time this film has become publically available for all to see.
