Editor's viewpoint: Picking genius Gerry Anderson's best work was unenviable task
Gerry Anderson was not just a BBC Northern Ireland presenter but - a word he would have hated - an institution.
His death in 2014 robbed the airwaves of a genius, a man who made quirkiness a way of life in his broadcasts and a man beloved by his listeners. He connected to them in a way that only the greatest broadcasters can and the more eccentric they were, the more he loved them.
The BBC has delved into the archives and produced a series of podcasts featuring some of his finest programmes.
That was an unenviable task.
Selecting the best of Gerry's work was like asking a parent to choose their favourite child and discard the others.
