I am sad to announce that Robert Monks, who was camera operator on 'the Prisoner' passed away on September 26th 2012. Robert was present at the Portmeirion shoot in September 1966, and again in March 1967. At MGM he headed the second film unit, and was responsible for the helicopter film footage seen in the series, as well as the opening sequence footage in London. Robert is pictured above aboard the Alouette helicopter at Portmerion.
Robert leaves a wife and seven children, and a great many friends, may he rest in peace.
