Personal Quote:

It boils down to incompatibility. We did four hours of live TV every day and you have to like each other. I think incompatibility sums it up and I don't think she would disagree with that. I have been at the BBC for 37 years and it is the first time I have had a problem like this. (On leaving the BBC following his differences with Kate Silverton)


One of the BBC's most experienced television journalists, he left the corporation suddenly in 2005 after 37 years, claiming he couldn't work with his latest co-presenter Kate Silverton.
