Location: Lonsdale Road, SW13 9JT

Description: Nicholas Parsons OBE (born 10 October 1923 in Grantham, Lincolnshire), is an English actor and radio and television presenter.

Parsons has been the host of the BBC Radio 4 panel game 'Just a Minute' since its first transmission on 22 December 1967. The show continues to be broadcast and Parsons has appeared in every edition. The programme's longevity is arguably due in part to the chairman's ability to act as straight man to the comedians who participate.

And what can this be down to...well it could be his schooling - and it was at this school - St Paul's Cathedral School in Hammersmith - where he was educated as a boarder.

As a legend in the Broadcasting world, they should be pretty proud to have him as an ex-student.

Parsons is also a high-profile supporter of the Liberal Democrats. Each year he holds his own live chat show in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival promoting up-and-coming comedians.
