Ned Sherrin
With the news of the death of Ned Sherrin, the presenter of Loose Ends, BBC Radio 4 lost one of its best-known and longest-serving voices. Alistair Beaton presents a personal tribute to his long-term friend and colleague.
For nearly 30 years the playright Alistair Beaton has been a close friend and colleague of Ned Sherrin, who died yesterday.

Tonight, in tribute to one of Britain's greatest broadcasters, he offers his personal take on the peculiar genius of Ned Sherrin as revealed through twenty-two years of Loose Ends.

Throughout these years, Ned Sherrin used the programme to nurture new talent and at the same celebrate the achievements of the justly famous. With excerpts that recall Ned's encyclopedic knowledge of the world of entertainment - and a few examples of his provocative wit - Alistair Beaton's Tribute to Ned Sherrin is at 6.30pm, Tuesday 2 October.
