Very sad news.
John Krish was a fine, distinguished BAFTA nominated film director and screen-writer.

Director of three Avengers series 5 episodes: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Station, The Living Dead and one of my favourite episodes from series 5 - the beautifully crafted historical time-machine thriller: Escape in Time.
RIP John Krish

BFI Tribute:
We are sorry to report the death, on 7 May, of legendary British director John Krish. Krish’s career spanned a mind-boggling array of forms: cult feature films (Unearthly Stranger), transport documentaries (the much-loved The Elephant Will Never Forget), children’s films (Out of the Darkness) and TV episodes, titles sequences (The Avengers), public information fillers (Searching) and commercials.

He is perhaps most acclaimed for his powerful documentaries and drama-docs – such as Return to Life (1960), They Took Us to the Sea (1961) and I Think They Call Him John (1964) – largely made under government, trade union or charity sponsorship.

John Krish’s work can be seen in the BFI DVD releases A Day in the Life, Captured, Shadows of Progress, London Tales and The British Transport Films Collection, the Network DVD release Unearthly Stranger, and several selections on BFI Player. The BFI Palgrave book Shadows of Progress: Documentary Film in Post-War Britain includes a chapter devoted to his career.

That is a great loss, one of my favourites.

I enjoyed John's work on The Avengers and The Saint. He had a long career, but unlike other directors on the sereies he came from a documantary and art house background. When I was writing Bowler Hats and Kinky Boots, he was one person who worked on the series that I failed to track down and unfortunately I won't ever get the chance to talk to him now.
