JACK LOWIN R.I.P.
The Unmutual Website is sad to announce that Jack Lowin, camera operator on many episodes of 'The Prisoner' and responsible for much of the visual look of the series, passed away on February 25th 2018 at the age of 93.
Jack began his career working in feature films as a focus puller, before ITV gave him opportunities on the small screen.
He worked on many of the early ITC dramas, including 'William Tell' and 'The Invisible Man', before he was given a camera operating role on Patrick McGoohan's 'Danger Man' series, where he struck up a great working relationship, and also a long-standing friendship, with the lead actor.
As well as working on 'The Prisoner', he also worked in the late 60s on other ITC series such as 'Man in a Suitcase', 'Department S', 'Randall and Hopkirk', and 'UFO' before returning to the film industry to work on greats such as 'Watcher in the Woods', 'Return of the Jedi' and several James Bond films.
TUW would like to express its sincerest sympathies to the family and friends of a uniquely talented man, whose contribution to 'The Prisoner' should never be underestimated.
