Media Archive - Noel Edmonds Versus John Snagge

This was a clever 1978 BBC TV programme called ‘a World of Difference’. It contrasted the old BBC announcer world of John Snagge with that of his ‘contemporary’ counterpart, the impressive Noel Edmonds, then coming to the end of his stint on Radio 1 breakfast. Enjoy some truly great old studio shots and a set of beautfully contrasting perspectives.

Here in 2016, almost as much time has elapsed between Noel and now as between Snagge and Edmonds. The carts, Gates turntables and haircuts tell that story. Mr Snagge, as it feels right to say, died in 1996.
