Journalist and presenter Robert Kee dies
The broadcaster and writer Robert Kee, whose television career spanned four decades, has died aged 93.
A prolific journalist and current affairs presenter, Kee started his career as a correspondent for the The Sunday Times and The Observer, before moving into television in 1958.
He became a regular correspondent for BBC 1’s Panorama, ITV’s First Report and Channel 4’s Seven Days, and was awarded the Richard Dimbleby Award for factual presenting in 1976. He became one of the original presenters of ITV’s first breakfast programme, TV-am, which launched in 1983 with David Frost and Michael Parkinson. He was also a celebrated writer, making his name with a three-volume history of Ireland called The Green Flag, published in 1972. The book was later made into a television series.
He wrote several novels, many of which were based on his time with the RAF during the Second World War. His first book, A Crowd Is Not Company, was based on his experience as a German prisoner of war.
Kee was appointed CBE in 1998. He is survived by his wife and three children.
