Personal Quote:

There was life before Coronation Street (1960), but it didn't amount to much.


Even after leaving Giggleswick School to start his TV career, he still lived in a cottage in the nearby village of Giggleswick. He is buried in St Alkelda's Churchyard in the village, within sight of the school's iconic domed tower. See more »


On his chat show Harty (1983), often asked his guests questions which began "You are, are you not, ...?"
