Sorry to hear that Jeff has had to move out of his Brighton flat. Do
give him my warm regards when you see him.
'Fraid I'm a bit far away (Paris) to be of much help, but have you
contacted David Curtis and Malcolm Le Grice at the Centre for British
Film and Video Studies (link below)? Even if the centre itself
doesn't have the financial resources to secure Jeff's archive
materials, they should certainly know where to turn.

It's absolutely essential that Jeff Keen's work (and life) be saved.
