Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon 

Gunned for Change

Nigel was ever at the forefront of experimentation, exploration and exciting ventures...

Nigel grew up in an era, straight after WW2, when people felt lucky to be alive.  So many had died and there were shortages. He said that "Most of our ships had been sunk and we lived under the heavy-hanging threat of nuclear annihilation." 

Nigel's writing career took off while at school, where he published poems and short stories in the UK, the USA and in France - after which he went on tour with his poetry, performing it and jazz at the same time. Nigel's film career began at the London School of Film Technique in 1965.

Nigel was one of the visionaries based at the infamous 101 Cromwell Road. David Gale wrote in The Independent "our preternaturally cool friend Nigel was running the hipster equivalent of an arty salon. Between our place and his, there passed the cream of London alternative society - poets, painters, film-makers, charlatans, activists, bores and self-styled visionaries"

Nigel was at the forefront of imaginative film and television. He was involved in projects such as:

  • collaborating with Hugh Hudson, director of Chariots of Fire, on TV commercials and documentaries

  • accepting a commission from Mick Jagger to co-write the screenplay, Performance, with Christopher Gibbs

  • producing and directing a film called a 30 minute film There is an Ocean with Donovan

  • acting as an editor at the BBC, cutting dramas and documentaries, with Pink Floyd, 10cc, Squeeze, Rainbow, Joe Cocker, Big Country, Wings, Paul Nicholas and Leo Sayer amongst others in the 70's.

  • writing and directing Regiment a documentary about the Royal Air Force's Infantry Regiment

  • making the award-winning television documentary The Colours of Infinity, presented by Sir Arthur C. Clarke with music by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd

  • directing The Bobby Charlton Story, Reflections Satguru, Rainbow - Live Between The Eyes and the series Whatever you Want for the UK's Channel 4

  • writing, producing and directing the broadcast documentary Is God a Number?

  • making a biographical documentary, Clouds are not Spheres, on the life and work of the mathematician Benoît Mandelbrot

  • Plus many other projects - and he hasn't stopped yet!

His vibrant and colourful character as well as his witty and intelligent words, will be sadly missed.
