Stuart Hall, who has been arrested by police investigating an allegation of rape and indecent assault, has been a familiar face and voice in British broadcasting for half a century.

His contribution to the medium saw him awarded the OBE in the most recent New Year Honours.

While best known to television audiences for his hosting of It's a Knockout in the 1970s and early '80s, Hall has won a cult following in recent years for his eccentric football match summaries on BBC Radio 5 Live.
