          R.I.P.

          Oddly, I preferred his TV work more than his feature films, where he was mostly a jobbing director. For TV he worked on 7 Up and its sequels, Harold Pinter's The Collection, several ITV Playhouse & BBC Play For Today, the superb P'tang, Yang, Kipperbang (pictured) for Channel 4, and Masters of Sex. Among his films I do like Gorillas in the Mist and Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

              He will be forever known for his documenataries but I thought " The Squeeze" was a top film.
              A very gritty, realistic thriller.
              Apted got some marvelous performances from Stacy Keach, Stephen Boyd & Freddie Starr. R.I.P.

                  I'd forgotten he directed P'Tang Yang Kipperbang - a great film about growing up. "Bloody hell-fire and scrotums!" "He went to the wicket a boy - and came back a man".

                    You'll be pleased to know Film4 will be showing this (no doubt as a tribute) on Monday 25th @ 2am (i.e. early Tuesday morning). I'll be recording it.
