Vale Charles Foster 

25 February 2023

Granada TV announcer Charles Foster has died.

Here he is ad libbing a welcome and a run-down of the remaining programmes after an electricians’ strike at Granada in 1983. Brilliantly handled, as you’d expect from someone as talented as him.

Wow! I remember the good old days of ITV, when it wasn’t just saturated in the Weeknights with that awful Coronation Street!!

Wasn’t it great when you had a variety of shows other than just Emmerdale (Farm) to Corrie then back to Emmerdale (Farm) again??
