Sir David Butler
Jun 26th, 2017, 8:28am
I am writing a book about the psephologist and political scientist Sir David Butler, who has many connections with the BBC.  He was a pioneer of TV general election results in 1950, and did all the TV results programmes as a pundit until 1979, as well as many other TV & radio broadcasts.

Sir David is now 92, well, and living in Oxford.  He took to Twitter in the recent election, and got 16,000+ followers in 3 weeks.  I'd love to hear from anyone with interesting memories of David, or of his late wife Marilyn (nee Evans), who also worked for the BBC in the late '50s/early '60s.
