Jonathan Dick: ‘Great pic! I remember Milton well, as he was on the board that gave me my first proper BBC job, as a Station Assistant at Pebble Mill in 1987’
Peter Poole: ‘Milton was a legend in news editing!’
Jane Green: ‘Loved Milton. He was my boss too in the newsroom. He tried very hard to be grumpy about everything – it was a challenge to make him smile but you could.’
Liz Munro: ‘Even though we barely overlapped at Pebble Mill, I remember the unforgettably named Milton with a personality to match…’
Maureen Carter: ‘Milton was THE editor to head for if you were arriving back late with the top story. My favourite Milton quote? Why’s a BBC film editor like a sheriff in the wild west? Because he clears up the s**t after the shooting.’
Lynn Cullimore: ‘Yes, I remember milton…such a character and I liked him.’
