✎ Bruce Forsyth 1928-2017 

18 August 2017 tbs.pm/13478

Sir Bruce Joseph Forsyth-Johnson, a powerhouse performer known to the entire country across a career that began in 1939, has died aged 89.

He discussed the start of his long career with the TVTimes at Christmas 1959, and we have serialised the three-part article on Transdiffusion, starting here.

When he wrote those words in 1959, his crowning moment was yet to come. In 1961, a strike threatened to take ATV London’s popular Sunday Night at the London Palladium off the air. A stripped-down version of the show was prepared just in case, but the strike was averted. Nevertheless, the stripped-down version with just Forsyth and Norman Wisdom was still made, producing some of the most amazing live television ever seen.
