Roger Mirams

Producer, Director

Roger Mirams helped launch legendary independent company Pacific Films in 1948, and went on to co-direct Broken Barrier in 1952 with John O'Shea — the only Kiwi feature made that decade. In 1957, Mirams set up a Pacific Films branch in Melbourne. Over the next five decades he won a reputation in Australia for his children's TV shows. Mirams was still working in his 80s; he passed away on 26 February 2004. 

Though he only had one 20-foot load 35mm news camera, Roger didn’t hesitate a minute and we started on Broken Barrier. John O'Shea on working with Roger Mirams on Broken Barrier
