Devastating to hear we’ve lost Geoff Wonfor, one of Tyneside’s greatest creative minds.

I worked with him quite a lot over the years, and when he spoke… you bloody well listened, ‘cos it was either bang-on-the-money advice, a bollocking, funny as owt, or all three. Thinking of his family and many, many friends this morning. RIP, Geoff x

Tributes to Geoff Wonfor

Scott Tyrell,

Deeply gutted to hear the legendary Geoff Wonfor has passed. Geoff’s credits are a pioneering encyclopedia. He directed Channel 4’s The Tube in the eighties. He directed the Beatles Anthology in the nineties, he was the Grammy-award-winning go-to director for music documentaries for the musical best of the best. And to meet him, he was the most everyday working-class Geordie – but with some belting anecdotes to tell.

When I worked at Tyne Tees TV I used to make my ciggie breaks coincide with his so I could try and soak up whatever genius he had. All I learned was, ‘stop dicking about and just do it. I found out he was a fan of my poetry a few years back and it was like having a divinity smile on your face. Like having your whole city tell you it’s proud of you.

This was taken when we were filming for Sunday for Sammy 2 years ago. Yes, Geoff Wonfor directed me and Tobes once. We were blessed.

Ray’s sentiment is shared by us all on Sunday for Sammy’s family. He was a huge presence, and we’ll miss him so much. Love to all his family, friends, and colleagues.
