The BBC have put together their annual obituary compilation and both Patrick Macnee and Brian Clemens feature in this year's tribute.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-35060400

I'm pleased but surprised they included Brian. They have notoriously left out 'backroom' TV people before, possibly most surprisingly (for me at least) was when they made no mention of Barry Letts in the year he died, either in the annual review or at BAFTA. I'm glad they didn't overlook Brian similarly.

The tribute also includes guest stars Ron Moody, Christopher Lee, Warren Mitchell and Nicholas Smith. Possibly the most surprising omission is Leonard Nimoy. Gone but forgotten! Whereas SkyNews' similar tribute included Nimoy but excluded Patrick Macnee.

(Brian & Patrick feature almost at the end of the clip, with TA theme tune played over)
