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.
