BBC journalist Brian Hanrahan, best known for his coverage of the Falklands War, has died at the age of 61, the corporation reported. He famously told the nation how he watched Harrier jets take off and "counted them all out, and I counted them all back". He spent more than 20 years at the BBC."
In the department that makes PM, we've had the pleasure of getting to know Brian in recent times, thanks to his work on The World at One and The World This Weekend. He was here only a few weeks ago.
