William G. Stewart has died

TV presenter and producer William G. Stewart has died aged 84.

For 15 years, he was the presenter and producer of the Channel 4 quiz show Fifteen to One. He also produced shows including Family Fortunes and The Price Is Right.

He was a long-standing supporter of the campaign to return the Elgin Marbles to Greece. He joked that if, on an episode of Fifteen to One, too few contestants survived the first round to continue the game, he would give a speech on the Marbles to fill the time. This happened in a 2001 episode, where he gave a lengthy presentation on stating the case to return them for which the channel was criticized.
