Geoffrey Perkins – respect due

Nice to read this about the 2008 British Comedy Awards from the Independent web site:

The Outstanding Contribution to Comedy award went to the producer Geoffrey Perkins, who was killed in a road accident in London three months ago. He was aged 55.

Mr Perkins was a radio producer on the classic The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and worked with comedians including Deayton, Catherine Tate and Harry Enfield.

Although that doesn’t cover 1% of the vast body of work that Geoff was involved in.

Here from the IMDb is a slightly more complete list of credits:
