The London Press Club is sad to learn of the death of Richard Lindley. He was not only a distinguished broadcaster himself but wrote some important books on the history of broadcasting. He was closely involved in issues affecting press or broadcasting freedom and took part in a number of events organised by the London Press Club, as chairman or panellist. He was a good friend of the Club and will be greatly missed. Our condolences go to Carole and to the rest of his family.

His Panorama colleague, Michael Cockerell pays tribute to Richard here.

His funeral will be held on Wednesday, 11 December at 11am at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square.
