Personal Quote:

The best response to extremist views is to fight them in the open, carry the argument to those who hold them, and let the public judge. That entails a properly conducted discussion. No BNP interviews, please, with Jonathan Ross. But Question Time (1979), with David Dimbleby in charge, should, even allowing for the volatile studio audience, shed more light than heat. See more »

Trivia:

He was made a Fellow of the British Film Institute in recognition of his outstanding contribution to television culture. See more »
