[But yesterday's tributes painted a portrait of a quiet, private man who never grew accustomed to the limelight that accompanied his success.] He was very shy, ... A man uneasy with the fame that came with the job. A man who liked to observe in the shade. He reminded me of Alec Guinness in that sense. But, my word, when he stood centre stage you'd better watch him. -Michael Parkinson
