David Davis

1908 - 1996

To the generations who grew up with Children's Hour, the voice of 'Uncle David' could be instantly recollected decades later.

He started as a performer on the show in 1935, eventually rising to Head of Children's Hour in 1953, then Head of Children's Programmes from 1961-64. Thereafter, he moved to the drama department as a producer, where he remained until his retirement.
