The couple moved to Ayrshire many moons ago from Hyndland, Glasgow, with their two children Yonnie and Christopher, both long since grown with adult children of their own. But Cavalcade was the big show that we had an audience of, well, one of the proudest things was that the Controller came to me one day and said, "Do you realise that you, that your viewing figures for the European Cup Final, you were up against the European Cup Final and you beat the European Cup Final! I think there was a great humour ran through the Company and I think that's why people worked so well.

He became one of the regular cast of STV's first situation comedy, The Adventures of Francie and Josie, which ran over four series from 26 October 1962 to 8 August 1965.In 1966, then again from 1970 onwards the show also broadcast on most Christmas and New Year’s Days, until 1989. Larry Marshall's wonderful, every day a change of programme and, think about it, wonderful stuff in those days, really, and very, very popular!

We also hope it will help the comments section fulfil its promise as a part of Scotland's conversation with itself. He was always chasing the ladies and so I actually finished up by just scrubbing it because we used to just take bits out because it was all references that I thought, 'a family shouldn't be watching this! I had Gyles Brandreth wrote me a letter way, way back when he was a young man, begging to come on the show and I've never reminded him of it but one of these days I might! Pepe Le Pew, for instance, was often a bit naughty, so Michael stopped showing it because it got too risque.

Glen Michael (born Cecil Buckland, 16 May 1926) is a British former children's television presenter and an entertainer. I was either an Arab or an old man or a drunkard or somebody with beards on and you never recognised me at all.

He was a regular in a string of STV comedy series, including The Rikki Fulton Hour ( 1965), Rikki (STV, 1966/ 7), Did You See Una? Hot from Scotland: Gordon Irving: Glen Michael BBC', The Stage and Television Today, 15 March 1962, 4. R: I think the best thing I can say about that is that I think the contribution that STV made in their early days was enormous. Contentious material about living persons that is unsourced or poorly sourced must be removed immediately from the article and its talk page, especially if potentially libelous.Back in the living room, when I suggest - judging from the photos on the wall - that his family is also one of his greatest achievements, Michael says I'm right. I often wish we could do a programme today of, and actually, just do a programme as we did it then and put it on today and I think people would enjoy it, you know.

Stop and talk to an older neighbour if you pass them on the street or knock on their door if they live alone.

It always annoys me because Paul O' Grady says he's the first one to have a dog on the desk and he bloody wasn't! There are lots of ways you can do your bit to brighten up someone's day or help lonely or socially isolated older people. Michael made a brief cameo in an episode of the BBC series VideoGaiden, playing himself in a speaking role.I remember I did the opening night of, I used to do Thursday nights on Radio Clyde, six and a half years, as I said, and I remember the first night I did it. That appearance was at the old Paisley Theatre, where he did a comedy spot of his own as part of the bill. Michael worked with Milroy for 13 years, in various roles on the famous Five Past Eight Show and Francie And Josie, the latter being Milroy and Fulton's double act, which began as part of the former and went on to be a television show in its own right.
