At the end of Chapter One of "Outside Broadcaster" Eric Robson reveals that his wife Annette counselled him against the writing of his autobiography.

I regarded it as an honour to be allowed to read the original typescript of these; and I treasure his book, "Letters from America" and certain smaller publications which always came with one of his typical little notes. He is an enthusiast for Alfred Wainwright and his Lake District fell-walking guides and launched Wainwright Society in 2002. I am now finishing the Brian Taylor Corsair I was building when interrupted by the arrival of the FW190, taking a little more than 10 days with this one.The 72-year-old is stepping down from the hallowed chair to be replaced by newsreader Kathy Clugston. He dreamt of becoming an actor but his mother, Nessie, was having none of it and started applying for jobs on his behalf.

He wrote about the damage done to land and people by industrial exploitation; he believed that ultimately man must became ‘farmer rather than miner; cultivator rather than exploiter’. Walpole was also ridiculed in Maugham’s novel Cakes and Ale as a selfish social climbing opportunist – an unfair caricature of a far more complex (and generous) man. I look forward to this new role immensely and will do everything I can to continue to support our members as we navigate the many new challenges our industry now faces.

Each will hold office for a term of three years; they will then retire and be eligible for re-election for a maximum of three terms. His reputation was such that he was asked to compile the relevant chapters for the new edition of the Cambridge Modern History.
