Peter Snow

Biography:Peter Snow For the New Zealand doctor, see Peter Snow (doctor). Peter Snow CBE (born April 20, 1938 in Dublin, Ireland) is a British television and radio presenter. He is the cousin of Jon Snow, the main presenter of Channel 4 News, and the brother-in-law of historian-writer Margaret MacMillan.

He was educated at Wellington College and subsequently read Greats at Balliol College, University of Oxford, where he was taught by R.M. Hare.

Snow was a newscaster for Independent Television News (ITN) from the 1960s, but gained most fame when recruited to present the BBC2 in-depth news programme Newsnight in 1980. He retired from Newsnight in 1998 and has since presented Tomorrow's World and the BBC Radio 4 quiz Masterteam, amongst other projects.

He has been involved in the live general election results programmes for many years, first at ITN and later for the BBC. He presents statistical analyses of the election results, and took over responsibility for the "Swingometer" following the death of Robert McKenzie. He is known for his somewhat excitable style of presentation and ever-more elaborate props and graphics, though perhaps his most famous prop was the most basic - a sandpit which he used to illustrate the progress of the First Gulf War.

He survived a plane crash in the state of Washington on October 1, 1999.

Along with his son, Dan, Peter Snow presented a TV series Battlefield Britain, covering battles on British soil from Boudica's struggle with the Romans to the Battle of Britain.

On October 6th 2005, the BBC announced that Peter Snow would be standing down from his electoral reponsibilties and concentrate more on journalism. Mr. Snow himself is quoted as saying "I shall be over 70 at the next general election and that, frankly, is a bit old to be dancing around in front of huge graphic displays"
