When I think of how much those things terrified me when I was six or seven... I saw him years later on the BBC explaining how he managed to create that hi-tech marvel. It included salvaging blinkers from the wreck of a Morris Minor! He turned out to be a likeable bloke with a great sense of humour. Job well done!

In the days before CGI and huge special effects (and even today sometimes, where my daughter has had to design sets for amateur and small professional shows with a budget as low as £50), that's what designers did: they saw objects in scrapheaps and skips and thought how to use them for maximum effect. And Ray excelled at that.
