Bernard Levin(1928-2004), Journalist and writer
Sitter in 6 portraits
Journalist and writer. Levin's regular pieces in The Times and later the Spectator commenting on everything, from the latest Royal Opera House production of Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutti to milk jiggers in motorway service stations, made him the literary equivalent of Boxer. He expressed the concerns and interests of the intelligentsia in the 60s and 70s. He came to fame with David Frost and Millicent Martin as a satirical commentator on the influential BBC television programme That Was The Week That Was.
