Christ, if that guy had been in charge of any nuclear testing none of us would be that old.

Guardian obit for John Pett (wiki), British documentary-maker who died back on 30 November 2021, aged 94.

I wanted to mention him because he directed 3 episodes of The World at War, one of the best documentary series ever made in my opinion.

Just read it. 

 

Pett had a bit part in Out Of The Clouds it says and his IMDB really has only that and one other entry (unless there is another separate entry for his documentary work). So I wondered if he was the last survivor of that movie, only to find (yeah start at the bottom and work up I say) that there are several non-dead actors who must be dead - George Spence played a man in a film of 1932 for example! So if someone had some time to look into the "non-dead" participants....
