I was sorry to hear the sad news of Magnus Magnusson. He always struck me as an enormously decent gentleman. As Mark Thompson, Director General of the BBC, commented, he was "one of the defining faces and voices of the BBC".
My wife and I were very privileged to be at, I think I am right in saying, the last recording of Mastermind presented by Magnus Magnusson. It was at Blenheim Palace. He carried out the whole thing with infinite patience and good humour.
He will, of course, be remembered for his catchphrase, which needs no repeating here. (I will remember him more for the way he used to say "Correct" in a very, clipped Scottish way.) But, of course, he was a journalist and broadcaster with a much wider hinterland than just a quiz show, albeit a very challenging and dignified one.
