I agree with Gordon Buchanan and David Jason.

Can we do posthumous ones - then I could nominate the wonderful and much missed Victoria Wood. 

I was pondering that but it's very easy to give posthumous awards - we could go back a long way

So hope everyone is ok with the living?

Is Gordon Buchanan well known enough, do you think?

I’m okay with the living.

Gordon is well known with those of us who watch wildlife programmes but perhaps not with others.

Why has no one proffered the name of David Bowie yet. His contribution to music and film along with other branches of the arts. Leaving a legacy which will endure for many centuries, well, not too many if the climate crises proves too much for the human race to endure.!

Has he been taken to the public's hearts and held in affection?

Respected - yes. Held in affection - hmmm?

140 Million record sales would suggest he is held in affection by a considerable number of people. 

 

It's quite hard to really define who and who is not held in the public's affection. A lot of the people who get held up as n.t's are being done so by the press and media, whether people genuinely like them is up for debate, we would need a referendum.
