Tony Bastable

14 October 1944 to 28 May 2007

A former journalist, Bastable switched to television in the early 60s and proved himself adept at presenting programmes for children. It was as a founding presenter of Thames Television's Magpie that he will be best remembered. He later co-hosted Good Afternoon! (1973) and wrote the American Bicentennial documentary 1776 (1976).
