Brian Johnston was one of the best loved figures on radio and television and will always be remembered as 'The Voice of Cricket'. He commentated on such events as the Coronation and the Boat Race, and presented over 700 episodes of 'Down Your Way', but he was probably known for his years on 'Test Match Special'. When he died in 1994 John Major paid him the tribute: 'Summers will never be the same'.
