Chat show host Simon Dee has died at the age of 74. He presented the Dee Time programme on the BBC in the late 1960s and was one of the biggest stars on British television during that era.
Former Radio Caroline and Radio 1 DJ Johnnie Walker said Dee was a "normal guy" and a part of the youth revolution of the 60s. Here, The Beatles present him with Radio Caroline's first birthday "bell" in 1965.
Simon Dee (right) is seen here with fellow DJ Tony Blackburn on the opening of BBC Radio 1 on 30 September 1967. Dee started his career on pirate radio, and was the first voice to be heard on Radio Caroline in 1964, before he moved to the BBC.
Dee Time, Simon Dee's pop music TV show, attracted a peak audience of 15m people from 1967-69. This image was taken with his wife Bunny at their north London home in 1966.
Simon Dee, real name Nicholas Henty-Dodd, starred in the film 'Doctor In Trouble', and is pictured in 1970 with four of his fellow cast members.
Simon Dee's career suffered after he left the BBC and then was sacked by London Weekend Television. After spending time on the dole he sought work as a bus driver.
Dee is pictured with Mary Ellen, a cockatoo on the shoulder of a pet shop manager in Richmond, Surrey, in December 1970. Having heard that Dee had fallen on hard times, the proprietor of the shop decided to help by offering him £25 to open the shop.
