Sir Terry Wogan

His genial manner and Irish blarney made Sir Terry Wogan a much-loved broadcasting institution.
He was a master of the live event, whether hosting his chat shows or compering Children in Need.
His jocular manner, and flights of whimsy, helped him build an audience of eight million for his radio shows.
An easy-going man off air, as well as on, he remained remarkably untouched by fame, fortune or any whiff of scandal.
Michael Terence Wogan was born in Limerick on 3 August 1938, the son of a grocery shop manager.
His upbringing was strongly religious. At the age of eight he was sent to Crescent College, a school run by Jesuits where discipline was harsh.
"We were brainwashed into believing," he later described losing his faith at 17 as a relief.
His father's promotion in 1953 saw the family move to Dublin where he attended another Jesuit school and developed a love of amateur dramatics and rock'n'roll.-read more -
