Brian Borthwick (1930-2015)

Brian Borthwick died on November 16th, the day by some strange co-incidence I was in the Imperial War Museum viewing one of his first films made for Halas & Batchelor in 1946, Coastal Navigation. He would have been around 16 at the time.

He was someone who enjoyed solving problems as well as initiating ideas. One summer in »
