Sad news on the death of UK film maker Michael Apted age 79. Directed many fine films including Gorillas in the Mist, The Triple Echo, Stardust the Bond movie The World is not Enough and one of my favourite Brit films The Squeeze in 1977 starring Stacy Keach and Stephen Boyd.

The Academy wrote;

Director Michael Apted will always be remembered for the groundbreaking documentary “Up” series. A past president of the Directors Guild and Academy Governor, he also made many acclaimed feature films, from “Coal Miner’s Daughter” to “The World Is Not Enough.” He will be missed.

Rest in peace, Michael Apted. Thank you for bringing โ€˜Voyage of the Dawn Treaderโ€™ to life, and for fighting to keep scenes about Reepicheep and Eustaceโ€™s friendship, despite their cost. The film would have been so different without that emotion.

This is such sad news. The 7-Up series was absolutely incredible, and Michael Apted said the last instalment would be the last, as he wasnโ€™t sure if heโ€™d be around to do another one. He also directed underrated 90s thriller Thunderheart.

ITV Memories wrote;

Michael Apted has died at the age of 79. The brilliant director gave ITV – and British television – one of its greatest ever programmes, the Up Series. From Seven Up in 1964 to 63 Up in 2019. Profound, unforgettable viewing. RIP Michael.
