Jack Kine, who was instrumental in the creation of the BBC Visual Effects department during the 1950's, died yesterday at age 83 according to the Bucks Herald. He and his effects partner, the late Bernard Wilkie, only worked on one story together, "The Mind Robber," but both were involved behind the scenes in the many innovations which came before and led to the show's success. An interview with Kine from a 1967 edition of "Late Night Lineup" was included on the Tomb of the Cybermen DVD. (Thanks to Paul Engelberg)
