Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

It was feared we might sully the stream of truth with inappropriate facial expressions. Instead the viewers saw pictures making the news. [commenting on BBC-TV's initial refusal to have newsreaders appear on camera]


He read history and modern languages at Cambridge. While there, he was active in the Marlowe drama society. After graduation, he began acting in repertory companies and was an English teacher in a London grammar school. See more »
