Sir Trev on the ITN drinking culture of the Seventies


Sir Trevor McDonald has spoken of the widespread drinking culture at ITN in the Seventies, and has said he enjoys finishing off a bottle of fine Burgundy when he gets home from work each night.

In an interview with Decanter magazine, the veteran News at Ten presenter said: “There was a bar across the street and most people could be found there day and night.

“My co-anchor, Reggie Bosanquet, had to be dragged out at five minutes to 10 and persuaded to sit down. How we used to carry on working I’ll never know.”
