Frank Bough obituary

Popular broadcaster who presented the sports show Grandstand and was the avuncular anchor of the BBC’s Breakfast Time at its launch in 1983

There was a time when Frank Bough, who has died aged 87, was rarely off BBC television. In the 1970s and 80s his ubiquity as a presenter saw him fronting a wide range of programmes, from breakfast television to sport, news magazines and holiday programmes, with an unruffled and genial professionalism. He could be presenting the Grand National coverage one day and interviewing the prime minister Edward Heath a few days later.
