Just read, that australian director and producer Raymond Menmuir died on 26 March 2016 at 85 years old. Crying or Very sad

He was knows as director of many TV productions in Australia and UK, and one of producers of series The Professionals.

Avengers fans will remember Raymond for two Avengers episodes, The Nutshell and A Chorus of Frogs, both from 1963.

Grieve and remember. Sad

Special article
Storry Walton and Tom Jeffrey remember a TV pioneer with affection.

Thanks for sharing the news, Denis, and for your customary excellent research.

Very sad that another one of the Avengers team has made his final exit.

RIP.

Thanks for posting Denis. As always a most thorough analysis of his life's work. But another loss for us ITC fans.

It's a great shame he didn't direct more episodes as he had a lovely loose style.

He was connected with a lot of good shows with many Avengers connections.

RIP Raymond
