Weather with Michael Fish
I think Mr Fish is a star!.. all through my childhood he read the forecast and up to recently when I can really appreciate his skills as perhaps one of the best TV weather persons out there.
The moustachioed presenter is best known for his notorious gaffe ahead of the Great Storm of 1987 – the worst in 300 years.
In the infamous broadcast the weatherman told viewers: “Earlier on today apparently a lady rang the BBC and said she heard that there was a hurricane on the way. Well, don’t worry if you’re watching, there isn’t.”
