He is chiefly known for his fantasy films, which include Jason and the Argonauts (1963), The Three Lives of Thomasina (1964), One Million Years B.C. (1966), The Viking Queen (1967), Creatures the World Forgot (1970), Pete's Dragon (1977), and C.H.O.M.P.S (1979), his final feature film.
Concurrent with his theatrically released films, Chaffey directed numerous British television series episodes, including several for The Prisoner, Danger Man, and The Avengers. From the 1980s until his death, all of his work was in American made-for-TV movies, and in such TV series as Fantasy Island, Stingray, MacGyver, T.J. Hooker, Matt Houston, and Charlie's Angels.
