Magnus Magnusson Dies at 77


War Hero
BBC News

A lot more arrows in his quiver than 'Mastermind' and something of a British institution, even if he was Icelandic.
I would agree, Mastermind was but a small part of his extensive work. He was friendly during his youth with a friend of my mothers and when he discoversed she still lived in the same house visited her which was a nice touch.

He will be missed.
