As a guardian of great radio and great radio people, few came close to Tim. When I was Controller of Radio 4, I sat on the Sony Awards Committee and watched him in action as Chair. He was simply the best : careful, clear, scrupulously fair and utterly determined. And all done with wry, dry humour and a lot of self deprecation. Our often fractious industry owes him a very great deal. He helped hold it together to demonstrate and celebrate our many strengths. As a colleague and friend he was shrewd, kind and very loyal. Decency shone out of him. And beyond all that, he adored his wife and family. They have my deepest sympathy.
