John Noakes has died

John Noakes passed away yesterday aged 83.

 

He was a stalwart of Blue Peter in the 70's and 80's and the longest running presenter.

 

I remember happy times watching him with Valerie Singleton and Peter Purves. He was such an action-man.

 

Sad loss.

Re: John Noakes has died

How sad.

 

I worked with John for many years on Blue Peter, first at BBC Riverside then at TVC

 

Mad as a hatter, but a really, really nice person.

The presenters were all fantastic, a great working atmosphere.

 

It was sad to hear about his recent decline.

And with Alzheimer’s as well. Makes you wonder if having a good run like that is really worth it if your more than senior years are just a fog of memories.

Thankfully I have mine and they are happy ones of this guy. Sad loss but a blessed release. 

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

Re: John Noakes has died

It was kidology on Johns' part. 

 

The elephant never stood on his foot, and he didn't stand in Pee.

John played up for the camera.

 

The keeper though was exactly as seen.
