We’re very sad to hear the news that Roger Graef has died. As well as being a brilliant documentary maker and hugely supportive Patron of ITT for many years, he was a kind person and great company. He’ll be much missed.

Read the announcement of his death by Channel 4 here and his obituary in the Guardian here.

Roger was always a powerful advocate for prison arts charities. On a recent podcast interview with Katie Derham, he spoke passionately about our Sounding Out programme for former prisoners, as well as the work of Changing Tunes and Koestler Arts. Listen to it below.
