Peter Jones (1930-1990) was a Welsh-born broadcaster, best known as a sports commentator on BBC radio. He commentated on each World Cup final from 1970 to 1986, and most of the major club matches during this time. A serious broadcaster with a mellifluous voice and a deep sense of gravitas, he painted radio pictures of events such as the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana in 1981. He collapsed while working on the University boat race in 1990, and died a few days later.
