After decades as Broadcasting's leading MC, Selwyn Toogood was on the receiving end in 1985 when he was This Is Your Life's guest of honour. Bob Parker hosts the former host of It's In the Bag, Beauty and the Beast and innumerable quiz shows. Friends paying tribute to Toogood include former "beauty" — and future Governor General — Dame Cath Tizard, former "quiz kid" and future Speaker of the House, Jonathan Hunt MP, and former Bag hostesses Tineke Bouchier and Sue Scott. Also sending greetings are several stars from Coronation Street.
