Bob Crampton

Bob's the Boss.As executive editor, he runs the news operation at HTV and multi-skilling is the name of the game.He stands by in his role as a production editor to step in to direct the news, he regularly presents the programme and fronts HTV West's travel show, The Great Escape.
This is a far cry from the South Africa of 1951 where Bob's father was the country's first radio DJ introducing piano music.He also ran a restaurant with Bob's mother in the shadow of Table Mountain.They still remember their son setting fire to the side of the mountain range!
By the age of 11, Bob was back in England and keen to become a top rugby player.Studies came first though and he left Sutton High School in Plymouth with a clutch of O-levels and A-levels.Just as his father had progressed from radio DJ to news presenter at BBC Plymouth, Bob went straight into journalism.He went to a small weekly newspaper in North Devon for a 4 year apprenticeship as a reporter.Following this, he went back to a turbulent South Africa to work on a daily newspaper - it was the time of Soweto and of violent unrest throughout the country.
Back to Blighty and a stint on a Sunday newspaper before joining Westward Television in Plymouth.It was a well-trodden path to Bristol, and Bob duly made the move to HTV West in 1983.Since then, there have been spells on current affairs programmes, consumer shows, live outside broadcasts and news specials.Two highlights for Bob have been producing a network documentary on sea survivor, Tony Bullimore, and another factual programme on landmine clearance in Afghanistan.
Bob is a Piscean who is into sailing, cycling, wine drinking, thriller films, ER on TV, Humphrey Bogart films, and eating fish.His favourite colour is blue, favourite band - M people, Simply Red and the Pet Shop Boys; favourite film - Shakespeare in Love.Top reads are novels by Gerald Seymour and John Grisham; Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt and Nelson Mandela's biography.Most admired person is his partner, Lizzie.She's a TV researcher who has 4 children - no wonder one of his pet hates is fighting for the bathroom in the morning.

As work to dismantle the 'old' news set in the studio started and the designers moved in HTV West's News Producer Bob Crampton decided this was a moment that should be captured on film.

"It was a such a drastic change to the set that we decided this really should be captured for posterity," he said.
