Former BBC News reader Kenneth Kendall has died.

RIP, Kenneth.

I think this clip shows KK at his best.

I assume KK was speaking live over moving pictures, stills and pausing for soundbites etc. Perfectly delivered.
Could it have been pre-recorded and put into the news as a presenter-led package? Perhaps, but I doubt it.

These days, I'm sure this would a series of pre-recorded packages (it's not till 3.55 that Bill Hamilton's package comes in) or done as a two-way between a presenter in the studio and a correspondent either in the field or in the studio depending on how new the news was.
