Close up of English actor and radio presenter Wilfred Pickles, while he looking at something with smiling face Wilfred Pickles was an English actor and radio presenter. Born in Halifax in the West Riding of Yorkshire, he moved to Southport, Lancashire, with his family in 1929 and worked with his father as a builder. He joined an amateur dramatic society and in a local production there, met Mabel Celilia Myerscough, all of whose family had been connected with the stage. Pickles remained a proud Yorkshireman, and having been selected by the BBC as an announcer for its North Regional radio service, he went on to be an occasional newsreader on the BBC Home Service during World War II. He was the first newsreader to speak in a regional accent rather than Received Pronunciation, "a deliberate attempt to make it more difficult for Germans to impersonate BBC broadcasters", and caused some comment with his farewell catchphrase and to all in the North, good neet". His first professional appearance was as an extra in Henry Baynton's production of Julius Caesar at the Theatre Royal in Halifax in the 1920s. He was born on 13 October 1904 and died on 27 March 1978. Photo Taken - 10 December 1970 Wilfred Pickles, people, man, English, actor, radio, presenter, portrait, smiling
