That's a pretty remarkable CV.

Can't provide a link here but I hear Geoff Hughes has died from cancer aged 68 (?)


Geoffrey Hughes was the voice of Paul McCartney in 'Yellow Submarine'.

And now the actor who voiced John Lennon has also died - John Clive.

I don't think he's the last


one good thing about 'nowadays' is that people live longer, and that their memories thoughts and feelings have been recorded in their own words for posterity

With Ceefax gone, the BBC are going to have to find something else to show for 3 or 4 hours before the national showing of The Superleague Show. ;)
