Sad to think that only Michael Aspel from Ally Pally and Richard Whitmore from the early 70s survive. It was always reassuring to see Richard on the tv and he seemed such great fun on other shows such as Basil Brush, Star Turn and Morecambe & Wise.

I remember it was Baker and Richard Whitmore who read the news when I was a kid. For some unknown reason Whitmore scared the hell out of me!

I was scared of Martyn Lewis - except on Today's the Day. Wink

Anyway, back on topic - here's Richard presenting the Nine O'Clock News alongside Kenneth Kendall on Friday 11 October 1974, during that wonderful period with the keyed-in newsroom and nameplates on the desks:

On hiatus from 1 January 2019. Perhaps I take the drawbacks of the written word *too* seriously.
