Mike Neville MBE was the face of North East News on both Look North (BBC North East and Cumbria) and Tyne Tees (ITV). He was a friendly face that I grew up with, he could be serious and then be very witty; he is an absolute legend. Radio Tyneside interviewed Mike at his home on the 16th October 2016, a day before his 80th Birthday.

Mike Neville, for over 30 years, presented Look North on BBC tv as well as working for itv. In 2016 he turned 80 years old and in this programme he talks to Dave Nicholson about his life and chooses some of his favourite music. As well, a number of his former colleagues remember working with him including Pam Royle, Bob Johnson and BBC newsreader Nicholas Owen.
