The TV veteran received a certificate from Midlands vice-chair Dorothy Hobson. “I hope to remain active to at least 2036 when it is my aspiration to organise a lecture for the RTS entitled ‘Television: the first 100 years’,” he said.

Terry Stanton’s interest in television began at an early age when his father bought a Marconi set to watch the funeral of King George VI in 1952.
