The Granada announcer in the third clip Dirty posted is Graham James, he was a minor tv & film actor in the 60's & 70's. I live in Granada land & have a distinct memory of seeing one of the films he was in, it was a Hammer film, either 'Horror Of Frankenstein' or 'The Vampire Lovers', shown late one night & James was doing the announcing, he popped up as the credits finished rolling and remarked 'I thought the young man was very good in that', it was then I realised that it was him I'd just seen in the film!
I'm sure I heard Charles Foster's voice on a tv ad or similar last week, he must be in his 80's by now.
Colin Weston was a notoriously clumsy announcer forever fumbling his words, he was a cheery bloke but you wonder how he got the job.
Do you mind not calling me squire or chief or boyo or mate?
