She's now 92 and housebound - but, like her husband, as sharp as a tack - but Michael wouldn't have had it any other way.

In Life's a Cavalcade, Glen looks back over an eventful and varied life which began in the picturesque Devon town of Paignton, where he was born Cecil Buckland. At the farewell party for the show, which ended in 1992 after 26 years, Gus Macdonald, former managing director at STV, said television would never see his likes again.

I was wondering, the reason why I asked the question was, you are talking to your audience on radio and the only gateway is the mike.

I'm trying to think who the Controller was that went to the Think-Tank in London and I can't remember his name. R: I think the best thing I can say about that is that I think the contribution that STV made in their early days was enormous. I had a knock on the door the other day, and a neighbour had left a jar of marmalade on my doorstep for my breakfast! In 1966, then again from 1970 onwards the show also broadcast on most Christmas and New Year’s Days, until 1989.

And he sent down Miller, who had a head of hair, who wasn't very pleased to come all the way down to Aberdeen to go in front of a camera to waggle his ears! But despite having close friends and family, he still found himself experiencing loneliness after the death of his wife Beryl.

For children, you know, so we did watch very, very carefully what we, the content of the show but we didn't play it down! Michael is rightly proud of his long and varied career, which began at the age of 17 and spanned theatre, variety, comedy and film. He began his career as an entertainer on stage for the army and worked his way up with his many shows that encompassed his talent for comedy, in particular, impersonations. He became one of the regular cast of STV's first situation comedy, The Adventures of Francie and Josie, which ran over four series from 26 October 1962 to 8 August 1965.

We had different guests - goalkeepers, footballers, I remember Mark Miller from the, played for Aberdeen and Alex Fergusson was the Manager of Aberdeen Football Club at the time and I mentioned to him about, we did a, I don't know whether you did it on the, wiggling our ears! To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. We started off, we used to go, I think somebody put us on to ten o' clock in the morning once and I got letters from a Minister, saying, "Would you please ask them to transfer your show because they won't come to Sunday School while your show's on! When Jack Milroy moved to England around the end of the 1960s, Michael initially felt isolated, but in the end made four times as much money from his increased television work. From Tuesday 1 May 1962 he was given his own nine-week record programme on the Scottish Home Service, That Reminds Me, in which, according to his producer Ben Lyons, he would "look at some of the more recent news, dip into vintage newspaper reports, add his own lighthearted comments, and illustrate the combined result with some records".R: Hugh McLauchlan, on the show and he nodded to me a few times and I didn't say very much over years and it wasn't until, oh, I think it must have been four or five years and I suddenly thought, 'I think I know this guy! He went for an audition and, instead, was offered a job as a driver supporting performers in Abergavenny.
