Obituary: Peter Snow

Peter Snow

Long-serving BBC film editor and video journalist Peter Snow has died suddenly, at the age of 53.

Since the early 1990s Peter had worked for BBC East Midlands Today, and was a dedicated and esteemed member of the team. His death has shocked staff in Nottingham who feel they have a lost a truly talented professional, as well as a good friend and colleague.

Peter was a member of BBC staff for nearly 30 years, beginning his career at Pebble Mill, where he was a network film editor on a range of programmes including Top Gear and Howards Way, as well as Midlands Today.

He had a passion for wildlife, which led him to work with Simon King, as film editor for the natural history filmmaker and presenter's early In The Wild film series, on programmes featuring Herrag the Herring Gull, in 1986 and 1987's Priddy The Hedgehog which were part of a series of six programmes broadcast on the BBC.

For staff who knew Peter and would like to pay their respects, his wife Helen and daughters Emily, 16, and Abigail, aged 10, would be pleased see you at his funeral on Friday 13 April, at 9.30am, at Grantham Crematorium, Harrowby Road, Grantham, Lincolnshire, NG31 9DT. Refreshments will be served afterwards.

Family flowers only but details of how to donate to two of Peter's favourite charities will be available at the funeral.
