Freddie Grisewood


Long-serving announcer and presenter who also holds the distinction of being the world's very first TV game show host (Spelling Bee). His work in the fledgling BBC TV service brought him a number of other TV "firsts" including commentating on the first televised coronation and the first televised tennis match from Wimbledon.

Grisewood was the narrator of several films including (with Richard Dimbleby) The Victory Parade from 1946 and such gems as How the Motor Car Engine Works. He went on to host the political discussion show Any Questions? from 1948 to 1968, retiring after a final show recorded in his home town of Liphook in Hampshire on his 80th birthday.
