In Memory Robert Robinson

100 GB Free Backup
The UK in the 1970s, was dominated by this man . Both on TV and radio. He hosted the BBC Radio 4 news programme, and was better known to the kids of the 1970s as the TV quiz host to Ask The Family. This BBC1 series pitched one upper middle class family, against another. As simple as that.

He compared the long running TV word game Call my Bluff. This was compelling viewing in the 1970s, and had peak time slots. That could never happen now.

Although the programme catered for the elite contenders, it was all done very softly, with Robert being like a kindly headmaster at all time. He produced many documentaries in the 1970s, and also presented the news quiz Stop The Week.

Robert also presented the first years of the 1970s of the TV review programme Points of View.
Robert died at the age of 83.
