Farewell to Mr Mellifluous

Sad to learn of the death of Paul Vaughan, first presenter of Radio 4’s arts programme Kaleidscope (now Front Row) and the unseen voiceover of television science programme, Horizon.

A renaissance man rare among BBC lifers, Paul could present and interview anything and anyone in no time flat. As a first-time author many years ago, he made me feel totally at ease in his austere studio. Lovely man. Knew his music. Lived a good long life, died at 89.

  • A lovely man, a real legend around BH when I first started at the BBC.
    Of course, his voice was BEST known on the Orange ads: “The future’s bright. The future’s Orange,”
