LAST UPDATED: 29TH SEPTEMBER 2019
On this page, the Showreel team will post requests for help in identifying announcers, voiceover artists and presenters.
We recognise that there are still lots of names and faces missing from the site. Please be patient with us whilst we build up our database during 2019.
Do you recognise these voices?
Help us identify this BBC Two announcer (42 seconds in), in a recording from April 1998. Clip courtesy of Ash Sowerby.
SUGGESTIONS RULED OUT SO FAR: Hannah Scott-Joynt.
And another mystery voice, this time from the 1980s. We believe it’s the same voice on all four clips below (though clip 4 features more than one announcer – our mystery man is the first continuity voice in that clip). Note on two of the BBC One closedowns, the unusual practice of using the ‘BBC1’ logo from the clock on the globe.
SUGGESTIONS RULED OUT SO FAR: Ian Aldred.
Over the last few years, there have been lots of new voices popping up and we’re struggling to keep up! If you are one of those voices and you don’t see your name listed on our site (use the Search facility to confirm), then please drop us a line and we’ll create a profile page for you.
Announcers on other satellite/cable channels
If you’re an announcer or a promotion voiceover artist on any of the many other TV channels out there, we’re every bit as keen to hear from you.
Irish TV channels
And keeping up The TV Room’s tradition of covering UK and Irish TV, we’d like to hear from any announcers – past or present – from RTÉ, Virgin Media TV and TG 4.
