Radio 5 live remembers actor Roy Skelton


Actor and singer Roy Skelton, best known for voicing puppets George and Zippy in the popular children's television programme Rainbow, has died aged 79.

Back in March 2006, when Rainbow had just been voted the best TV show of all time, Radio 5 live Drive's Jane Garvey spoke to the actor.

He also voiced the Daleks in Doctor Who from 1967 to 1988, as well as the Cybermen and the Krotons.

Here's a short clip of that interview.
