Probably no broadcaster has provoked such varied reactions, figured in so many cartoons or occupied such a prominent place on our television screens for so long as Sir Robin Day.
This special programme to mark Sir Robin's 30 years of broadcasting for BBC Television features many of the memorable moments - controversial, moving, hilarious and unintended - of his career, and many of the famous personalities - including six prime ministers, two American presidents, Fidel Castro, Winnie Mandela, Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise - who've featured one way or another in the 'Grand Inquisitor's' life.
