image for Dimbleby Gets Lifetime Award

Legendary broadcaster David Dimbleby has received this year's lifetime award at the annual Royal Television Society's Awards.

The 72 year old, brother of current affairs presenter Jonathan Dimbleby and son of World War 11 broadcaster Richard Dimbleby, is currently the host of BBC flagship show, Question Time.

Dimbleby called the news of the award "one of the best moments in my life", despite the fact that he has been made an honorary graduate at a number of British universities.

But the veteran broadcaster will have to go some to surpass the achievement of the late Barbara Cartland.

The romantic writer - who died in 2000 at the grand old age of 98 - received 5 lifetime awards for contributions to literature.

Make grimbo's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
