I think that for most people under 40 all he'll be remembered for is Through the Keyhole. I never knew about his earlier prowess until the film a few years back.

Among the talent he helped on their way into broadcasting were The Two Ronnies, David Nobbs, John Sullivan, Peter Tinniswood, John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Frank Muir, Denis Norden, Barry Cryer, Marty Feldman, Dick Vosburgh and Antony Jay. Pretty impressive.

RIP Tom Clancy
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!
