Whicker Walkabout – 1970
The video above has Alan talking to the Osmonds in 1977.
Alan was born in 1925 in Egypt, and was a star at the start of the golden age of TV. He was one of the very first TV interviewers who became “copied” by impersonators and comedians throughout the years. Even the Monty Python team made a sketch where a whole Island was full of Alan Whicker’s.
Whicker’s Walkabout later became Whicker’s World and ran both on the BBC and the ITV. In relation to his ability to educate and entertain, he was awarded in 1977 the prestigious Richard Dimbleby Award.
