Pat Jackson

Biography: In the late '30s, Jackson made short documentaries with the British GPO Film Unit, including Big Money (co-directed with Harry Watt) and The First Days (co-directed with Humphrey Jennings and Harry Watt). In 1944 he helmed his first feature, the World War Two semi-documentary Western Approaches (aka The Raider), and over the next twenty years made several notable films, including the mystery Shadow on the Wall and the horror spoof What a Carve Up! (aka No Place Like Homicide). Since the '60s he has worked chiefly in television.
