Sir David Frost. To some, the doddery old man who peered through the keyhole. For others, company over breakfast as he ushered in the day with a cheerful hello, good morning and welcome on the sprawling sofas at tvam.

But he should be remembered as a brilliant, pioneer of news programming. A clever, diligent and persistent interviewer. A journalist, broadcaster and trailblazer who not just helped carve a path for television news as we know it today, but walked it too.
