    Nothing more than a very very overrated painful presenter post 90's that the BBC failed to put to rest but the previous 40 or so years of entertainment can't be argued against.

      I know it's normal, and in some ways it's understandable...but just watching Sky News and they had an obituary report all ready to air within 120 seconds of breaking the news. Not sure if that sits right with me, just having a bank of famous peoples' obituaries ready for when they pass on.

      I know they prepare these upfront they all do it, but it does feel contrived when only 2 minutes after the announcement they come up with one
      It was always one of the first jobs a young reporter gets lumbered with when they joined a national newspaper - to update the obituaries, so that they're ready to run for the next day's edition.

      Nothing disrespectful at all. The only things contrived is when some people would ask not to have certain things put on file within their obituaries.

      Standard journalistic procedure.

      I used to work for a music channel and had a Sinatra Obit video sitting on the shelf for a number of weeks.

      Standard procedure I'm afraid.

      That was years ago and now people expect to put on the news and see a tribute. Doesn't happen by magic.

      Tonight people will be trawling every programme to make sure nothing disrespectful is broadcast. Imagine that in a multi channel world. Everything scheduled months in advance and full of comedy panel shows !

      If my epitaph is half as strong as that, I'll die a proud man.
      Exactly, his first 40 years in show business was very good. I didn't expect so many people to react badly to my post, no offence meant. Maybe I just worded it wrongly.

      One of the last remaining genuine all round entertainers, with roots in variety. TV loved him because he was versatile - sung, danced, and made people laugh, and audiences loved him because he felt like one of them, so he made a natural game show host. Wobbled a bit in his later years but which of us wouldn't if we were still working in our 80s. Proper entertainment legend, God rest 'im.

      On the contrary a BBC master stroke keeping him involved. Plus they don't keep them in a cupboard at Television Centre, the BBC needed Brucie more than the other way round.
