He began his working life in the family coffee business in Brazil, but wanted to be an actor and joined the BBC after a chance meeting with Wynford Vaughan Thomas. At first he reviewed new West End shows that were potential for future broadcasts, but in 1948 started his own series, Lets Go Somewhere, with an audience of 20 million. Having first broadcast on cricket in 1946, he eventually joined BBC Televisions commentary team.
