Barry Norman


#1

Deeply sad news.


#2

Ah shite news. My love of film grew from watching him back in the 90s, he was such a passionate and warm man.


#3

Someone whose reviews often inspired me to watch some films I was reticent about trying. Hope there’s a big cinema in the sky with the best seat in the house reserved for him.


#4

Yeah pretty much this, he introduced me to so many amazing films :frowning:


#5

A great, cheery, populist critic. All ways sang the praises of the best film of the week and not the biggest film of the week.


#6

Just seen this on the BBC website and my mouth opened and said “Oh fucking hell, not Barry!”. I’m sad sad.


#7

These are the end credits the BBC put together for his final show.

My dad would watch it every week, and videotape it for me to watch the next day.
