Sir Bruce Forsyth obituary: a TV presenter in a class of his own (theguardian.com).
“Bruce Forsyth, who has died aged 89, was associated with some of the most successful shows in television history, from Sunday Night at the London Palladium in the late 1950s to The Generation Game in the 1970s and, for a decade from 2004, Strictly Come Dancing, a light-entertainment phenomenon that attracts a third of the viewing audience to BBC1 on a Saturday night.
“As a compere, game-show host and fleet-footed comedian, he was in a class of his own, providing an authentic link between the old days of variety, where he started as a youthful sensation during the second world war, and the new craze for audience participation and reality television.”
Indeed, and with a TV career spanning more than 75 years with Guinness World Records recognising Forsyth as having the longest television career for a male entertainer (Wikipedia), it certainly was a “good game, good game” and “didn’t he do well” (thesun.co.uk).
