Ray would very occasionally post over on Brit Movie, but he set up his account minus the personal message provision so the only way to talk to him was on the boards.

When I saw him in London last year he said he was planning on writing his autobiography so hopefully he's been busy with that.

Wow, I am currently studying TV Times from 1-7 February 1969, and found Ray's commentary on how he became a film director for swimming sequence in Avengers episode The Bird Who Knew Too Much:

Eventually The Avengers provided me with a chance when a director went sick on a critical shooting day and I was called on to direct a swimming sequence with Diana Rigg. They were happy enough with the results to make me a second unit director.

Curiously, I read about it in other articles earlier as for Ray started as film director in The Avengers from this scene, but the information was presented so that I thought that Ray was simply asked to shoot the scene as a chance for him to measure his capabilities.
