Knowing Mister Watkin

A website that celebrates the Life and Films of David Watkin.

It is some time since David Watkin died in Brighton. His house is now sold, his Library and personal papers dispersed, and stocks of both volumes of autobiography destroyed. But his reputation as a wit, scholar and craftsman has not diminished.

It is hoped this website will further include visual and documentary material it was not possible to publish before; correspondence with friends, lovers and sparring partners; interviews not previously seen and unpublished autobiographical writings.
