Obituary: Bob Symes, TV presenter and rail campaigner
This was sad to read about. If you grew up in the 1960s and 1970s then he was the original "Uncle Bob" and if anyone influenced me to look at terrain work for layouts/war-gaming then it had to be him! He was a wonderful engineer well, he was one of the Old School "all rounders" who had many interests and skills
And how did I hear this sad news? By glancing at the corner of a TV guide interior page. NOTHING on BBC News. That's the BBC for you.
