Last quote by Barry Norman

I was made redundant by the Daily Mail at about half past nine on the night of Friday 12 March 1971, and I mention this now not from any desire to brag but as a matter of historical fact. I should also like to take this opportunity to thank those responsible, whoever they may have been, for what at the time seemed an unkind – to say nothing of crass and insensitive – act; because from a professional point of view, making me redundant turned out to be quite the nicest thing the Daily Mail did for me in all the 13 years I worked for

I think the difference now is that people go on television because they want to be celebrities and that seems to be an empty ambition. I do like to feel I've contributed something, as well as just sitting there.”.
