Broadcaster, journalist, voice of every American's Englishman and everyone's voice of America. This evening brings to Radio 4 his 2,055th Letter from
America, offered as always with the poised and intimate delivery that has made him one of the best-known voices in broadcasting history.
From Blackpool via Cambridge University, he moved to the United States, where he has lived for half a century. Jazz enthusiast, golf connoisseur, lover and master of language, he has kept a shrewd commentator's eye on events on either side of the Atlantic. 'I'm an observer' he says, 'noting the changes.' Are there heroes, in his eyes, who have withstood the test of time?

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
