We were saddened to hear of the passing of the original producer of The Avengers, Leonard White, January 2, 2016. Our Father and Leonard knew each other from the early days, at Windsor Rep and later at CBC-TV in Canada. As Leonard reads in a letter he had received from Patrick, the work on The Avengers was a “continuation” of the live television they did together in Toronto and New York in the 1950s.
We join the fans of The Avengers around the world in sending our condolences to his family.
Here is a YouTube video of Leonard reading a letter from Patrick discussing the very early days of The Avengers…Ian Hendry and Honor Blackman. Leonard was responsible for all of those shows.
