One of ITV's most iconic announcers - Redvers Kyle made a name for himself as an announcer for Associated Rediffusion who also presented just about any studio-bound production going.

After Rediffusion was forced into a shotgun marrage with ABC to form the mighty Thames Television, he made the trip north to Yorkshire Television and for 25 years, led a formidable team featuring the likes of John Crosse and the late Graham Roberts. He officially retired in 1993 but popped up as a relief announcer from time to time and did some voiceovers for Victor Lewis Smith's TV Offal.

He died on 18 November 2015 at the age of 85.


He made history in 1957 as the first presenter of a schools programme on British television.
