Any help will be appreciated. 1. Surname of the first British TV newsreader/newscaster to be knighted, not necessarily for TV work!
2. A word that means a type of food prepared from certain parts of an animal, especially the pig, is also an old-fashioned tailoring term meaning the large lacy frills on a man's dress shirt or coat?

Hi Upandrunning,

It's nice to meet you Smile

Re: Question 2

* Chitterlings- The intestines of a pig or other animal prepared as food.

* Chitterling - The frill to the breast of a shirt, which when ironed out resembled the small entrails

Hope this is the answer you were looking for.

Regards, Butterfly Very Happy

The first that comes to mind is Sir Robin Day in 1981.

Thanks carditel, I found Robin Day but was wondering if there was anyone earlier than 1981. Many thanks for answering.

There is also Alistair Burnett, but I cannot find a year for him.

Knighted Newsreader
I think I have an answer for this question. But he lives down under and according to my source was knighted in 1979. Doubt the queen would honour an antipodean so readily now.

Good Morning teachermike. I am going to go with a newsreader who became Director General of the BBC and then Chairman of Thames Television. Thanks to all who answered.

For teacher mike

Have the answer to the newsreader question - I went with Alistair Burnett and that was correct.

Thanks to all who took part.
