John Lloyd has had one of those careers that’s difficult to summarize. As a radio producer he devised The News Quiz, Quote… Unquote and To the Manor Born before moving to television to start Not the Nine O’Clock News, Spitting Image, and Blackadder. He was the original choice to host Have I got News For You. After a long break from television working mainly in advertising he returned in 2003 to create QI, now in its 11 th series. More recently he can be heard as the host of Radio 4’s Museum of Curiosity, and could be seen doing his first ever stand-up show at this year’s Edinburgh Festival. He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2011 New Year Honours for services to broadcasting. Also in this week’s show, in the first of a new regular slot, comedy writer Helen Zaltzman tell us about something, or in this case someone close to her heart. This was the 300th episode of Little Atoms.
First broadcast on 9th November 2013. http://www.littleatoms.com/johnlloyd.htm
