Radio 4 psychiatrist dies

Popular broadcaster and psychiatrist Dr Anthony Clare has died suddenly at the age of 64. He was well known for his programmes on BBC television and radio, including the Psychiatrists Chair on BBC Radio 4.

The Professor had been due to retire from his position as Consultant General Adult Psychiatrist at St. Edmundsbury Hospital in Lucan, Dublin, at the end of the year.

Mark Damazer, Controller, Radio 4, said: "Anthony Clare had a unique interviewing style and In The Psychiatrist's Chair was a gold-standard Radio 4 programme. He was perceptive, unafraid and yet courteous. It was a potent mix. His subjects were not in the chair to be belittled.

"But as his questioning unfolded the audience invariably discovered more about the thoughts and emotions of the famous and powerful. He was a terrific broadcaster."
