Written By: Philip Eno on 03/17/16 at 3:21 am

Cliff Michelmore, a familiar figure in BBC radio and TV broadcasting since the 1940s, has died in hospital aged 96.

In a career spanning some 60 years, Michelmore anchored coverage of events including the Apollo moon landings and two general elections.

Known for his unflappable style, he interviewed figures including Prince Charles, Prime Minister Harold Wilson and a 17-year-old David Bowie.

BBC director general Tony Hall said he was an "outstanding broadcaster".
