    There are many stories I could tell about John and our time on LMVT3, but as a tribute I can only say that he was the ideal mentor. He had an eye for how to construct a programme and how important it is to get the pace even.
    In his own early VT days, he had been taught by Roger White, and, in turn, passed this expertise on to me.

    I owe my BBC career to him.

    John was a brilliant editor for actuality programmes. His decisiveness and enthusiasm was appreciated by anxious production staff who were always relieved to see it was John in control.
