 30 years of Newsround


Helen Rollason joined with the intention partly to increase the sports coverage on Newsround, and her Newsround Extras included reports on young gymnasts and girl jockeys.

After she left in 1991 she joined BBC Sport and went on to become the first woman to present Grandstand.

Sadly, she died of cancer in 1999.

Also this year, a secret BBC survey showed that 96% of children aged 10-15 thought John was a good presenter - 15 years after he started on the show!
