Potted Histories added today June 8th 2016

We heard from Rod Thomas (Feb 2017) who is keen to contact some of the class of ’66.  He hasn’t been in contact for over 50 years.  He freelanced in London in the 70’s (unknowingly a street or two away from several of us!) but later joined TV as a film editor and then later as a cameraman.  Looking forward to hearing more Rod (Rodney).  Rod’s eMail is if you care to contact him.  Otherwise – if you are free …

On the 17th March 2018 at Ye Olde Swan in Thames Ditton many of us are celebrating Michael’s 70th Birthday!  Could you come along?  Contact Michael Brown on

 Two potted histories have been added today for Riri & Malcolm Barker (nee Girardon) Italy and for Martin Grigg (Australia).  Riri & Martin were of the Class of 66 and Malcolm from the Class of 67

Please send us your potted history and a photo of yourselves – maybe some work you have produced.  We’ll get your commercial work up on the Students Work pages together with your contact details if you wish.

Alumni Reunion May 10th 2016

We had a fabulous day at Ealing last Tuesday, not the biggest event by far but probably the most successful because the Alumni Team and the Photographic Team put on a good show. From the outside little has changed and you’d still recognise The Castle, The Red Lion and The New Inn. But inside the whole fabric of the building has changed, although you would recognise the stair wells. This multi million pound development has also invested heavily in equipment and facilities.

Many staff were on hand to make our tour informative and special mention must be made to Damian Chapman, who is the Head of Design & Communication, London School of Film, Media & Design. Apart from giving a welcoming speech to everyone he stayed around and spoke to many alumni individually. We were made most welcome and I believe many initiatives will develop from this initial meeting.

Ray Daffurn took loads of photos to record the event and many of these can be viewed on the Gallery Events page.  Click on an image and then use the arrows either side to browse.

The Alumni Relations team would like you to complete a brief questionnaire.  Some of you completed them on the day, so this will not apply to you.

However here is the questionnaire – which I hope you can fill-in and return via eMail ( very soon.
