  1. Actress Patricia Kennedy died early in December. It went fairly unnoticed except for a death notice published on The Age website. One of her films, The Getting Of Wisdom, was shown on Gem yesterday but she also starred in many TV productions.

    Vince Lovegrove died in March. Producer of the documentaries Australian Music To The World and Suzi’s Story, the latter documenting his wife’s battle with AIDS. He’d also worked on The Don Lane Show and the original A Current Affair.
