No sh*t!

Now here's a dilemma, do we have us a genuine celeb relative surfing and joshing with the rest of us or a drive-by case winding us up? Only time, I guess, will tell. When his official site goes live and he links it to us here we'll know Jenny was the real deal. Amazing, real tension and interest surrounding Cliff Mitchelmore!

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

S'cuse the pedantry but after an exhaustive Internet trawl I think we have us a mistake here.

It's MITCHELMORE and not MICHELMORE as we have it at the top of the thread.

No it's definitely Michelmore.

He's my dad! Fit and well at the age of 86, in fact we are about to teach him how to use the internet so he can continue to inform all those out there that he is alive and well and surfing the net!!!!

:old: <--- he's almost 1 of these but with no beard and looks a damn sight better!!

B) <--- that's more like it ;)
Thanks for the update Jenny. Please keep us posted.

Tempus my good man:

I'll bow to your Michelmore knowledge, but there's loads of misguided souls out there in cyberspace disagree.

If Jenny Michelmore's post is genuine, and I see no need to doubt it, is this the first post by either the topic of a DL thread or their relative? Its certainly very sporting of her to join the dicussion and I look forward to hearing from Cliff. I do hope he's lost that comb-over.

Super-S'cuse me but I believe that his own daughter Jenny would be better informed on how to spell her own F*****g name.

Have a look at the final few posts in the World's Strongest Man thread. Also have a read of Clive Dunn as well.

Cecil my unregistered drive-by poster of a mate!

I take yer point but as someone with a week or two's experience around these parts I know better than to take anything on these boards at immediate face value. Should you decide to stick around you'll find banter - for example - claiming that one poster is Jimmy Page in disguise.

Then again, maybe you're an old timer on these boards yourself sneaking under the wire with a new name. And maybe I'm Cliff Michelmore joshing with yers all. I love the Internet me.

Definitely Michelmore. A HUGE amount of people on the internet are stupid & cannot spell as proved here

Cliff Michelmore is one of the best tv presenters the BBC ever had. Panorama's editors wanted him; Donald Baverstock, founder of Tonight, had a prior claim and wouldn't let him go. He was one of the nicest men in the business and I hope he lives for ever.

Charles, like hell you're the real thick haired veteran correspondent. Incidentally, if Cliff did live forever don't you think there'd come a point when the pain in his 200 year old knee joints would become intolerable?

This is class!, Cliff in action from 1960 on a clip about the way Newquay is becoming a home for scruffy undesirables. Man, he was old then, he's old now and people still have the same worries about Newquay.

Nowt changes, or summat.

Does anyone know anything about his current health? For such a famous face from the past he seems to have dropped well out of sight. He seems to be taking us on, betting our interest will die of apathy before he dies.

he is very fine thanks. i am currently dating his grand daughter and he is in good health.

How are his internet studies coming along? We would love to have him as a forum member, he would be made most welcome.

He turned up in a documentary on the history of childrens television last night. Obviously frail, but equally obviously in full possession of his marbles.

This is true my form is something odd,

I would not fail in pleasing you.

Thought it was about time to bring this thread back to life. 93 last December was our Cliff

Have I not just seen him in archive footage on BBC2?
