Bob Holness died today aged 83.

Bob was the host of a popular student quiz show called Blockbusters and was a bit of a national treasure to people aged 30-40.

He was also the 2nd James Bond playing him in a radio play in South Africa but he didn't play the saxophone solo on the Gerry Rafferty hit Baker Street which is a popular urban myth.

"Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest."
- Denis Diderot (1713-1784)
