How long ago was it that Clarence Mitchell presented the national news?

My favourite BBC NEWS presenter is George Alagiah. I recently wrote to him asking how he got into BBC NEWS and he rang me at my house! I was bloody gob-smacked. He had to ask if I was OK, but he gave me his phone number at London studios if I never needed him again!
So cool! (that happenned 17/04/2001)

I actually quite like Matthew Amroiliaiuilwroolouiwala (I think that's right Smile) - he does Breaking News very well, and can improvise really well when co-ordinating the Breaking News.

I also agree with you. I don't see anything wrong with Matthew or Jane for that matter!

I actually do like Matthew thingy, I know everyone knocks him here. I too think that he handles breaking news well, I like his interviews, and he has a sense of humour. I've been watching his partnership with Jane whatsaname and they seem OK together.
