RIP: Magnus Magnusson 1929 - 2007

The news came through when I was on the phone to my Mum that Magnus Magnusson has died.

I really liked Magnus and he played such a major role on the TV in the 70's and 80's as the host of Mastermind that he'll always be part of my childhood and teenage memories. Certainly the phrase "I've started so I'll finish" will be remembered for years to come.

Oh that is a shame. He's an institution.
