Richard Dimbleby was the BBC’s first-ever radio news reporter and later became the Corporation’s official War Correspondent. His measured, cultured delivery, combined with his ability to paint evocative word pictures, gave his dispatches both authority and vividness.
He was the unofficial voice of the nation on state occassions and was honoured with both the OBE and the CBE.
