Anne McGarry’s memories of Bob Greaves joining Granada

He (Bob Greaves) came to Granada, he replaced Terry Dobson as news editor. I think he was about 30 years old, although he was married and he had two children he gave me the impression of being a little older and more mature for his age. He was a lovely and pleasant and down to earth man and was committed to his work as a journalist. He’d come to us from the Daily Mail. He was born and brought up in Sale, near Manchester, and had lived most of his life in the area. And he was another grammar schoolboy who’d not gone to university and started work on the local paper. He was a kind, friendly, chatty man and it was a pleasure to work with him. So, I’d left Granada in ‘66 and I believe he began his career on screen a year later.
