I have nothing but warm memories of Prof Seymour-Ure from my time at the University of Kent at the very end of the 1980's. His fascinating lectures on Mass Media and Political Communication were delivered in the most brilliantly engaging style - a product of his passion for the subject and of his warm, encouraging personality. So enthused was I, that I even persuaded friends doing completely unrelated degrees to sneak into his lectures! In retrospect, it is of some regret that I declined his generous offer of post-grad research into news media - working with this brilliant man was a golden opportunity but sadly I was too impatient to start working at the coal face as a journalist. I have only just heard of Colin's passing and felt I had to offer this small tribute to a wonderful man who genuinely made a lasting impact on my life in the all too brief period that I knew him.
