    One of Mac’s early jobs was manning the racing desk on Grandstand. If you see archive footage of broadcasts from the 70’s you’ll often see John sat at a desk directly behind the presenter.
    He enjoyed working with Frank Bough but despised David Coleman who he described as a bully.

    I remember watching him on the Morning Line on channel 4 with my Granda whilst waiting for Football Italia to come on!

    He certainly brightened up the Morning Line, that’s for sure
