Executive producer Angus Wright passes away aged 78

Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends' former executive producer, Angus Wright has died at the age of 78.

Wright, who was one of the people responsible for Thomas' transition into a television programme, passed away in France on June 15th 2012.
Born in Britain, Angus worked in many behind-the-scenes departments for the BBC and ITV before transferring to The Britt Allcroft Company in 1984, which led to Thomas' TV creation.

He embarked on a relationship with show creator, Britt Allcroft, before marrying some time after. They divorced years later. Angus played a vital role during Thomas' first five series by serving as a producer.
Before the millenium, Angus moved to France where he became infatuated with the country. He then proceeded to live in his ideal place and served in politics.
