R.I.P. Denis Norden.
Denis Norden was an English comedy writer and television presenter.
After an early career working in cinemas, he began scriptwriting during the Second World War. From 1948 to 1959, he co-wrote the successful BBC Radio comedy programme Take It From Here with Frank Muir. Muir and Norden remained associated for more than 50 years, and after they stopped collaborating on scripts, they appeared regularly together on radio panel programmes My Word! and My Music.
Norden wrote scripts for Hollywood films. He also presented television programmes on ITV for many years, including the nostalgia quiz Looks Familiar and blooper shows It'll Be Alright on the Night and Laughter File. He retired in 2006. #denisnorden #rip
