  1. One of the best announcers in the business! I loved Mark on Thames TV and he was one of the people I loved listening to in my childhood!

  2. Yes , Caƕlton showed a lot of real people saying ” This Carlton, from London” I still remember the Beefeater bloke that started the channel off but dont get me started on Carlton as I was sad when Thames finished and hated Carlton.
