Documentary film-maker and photographer;
Born: March 22, 1947; Died: April 16, 2012.
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of David Peat, a great friend of Indepen-dance. Most of you will remember David when he was with the company for a year preparing our fantastic Company DVD. David loved working with everyone in the company and he will be sadly missed but he has left a fantastic legacy which we will all cherish.
David was one of Scotland’s most respected documentary film-makers, who possessed a passion for and a mastery of, both the moving image and the still photograph.
As an award-winning director and cameraman, his memorable list of television credits include Gutted, a BBC Scotland film about the plight of the fishing industry, This Mine Is Ours, about Monktonhall Colliery, and series such as Clydebuilt and Scotland On Film.
Our sincere sympathy goes out to his wife Patricia, whom he married when they were both in their thirties, and their two grown-up children, Duncan and Rosie.
