The 80-year-old, who is best known as the first solo presenter of Film, the BBC’s renowned review show, took part in a talk at the centre in Ivy House, North End Road, Golders Green, last month.

Mr Norman treated an audience at the LJCC to an hour-long chat with Guardian literary editor and former Ham&High theatre critic Claire Armitstead as part of the Hampstead & Highgate Literary Festival programme of events.

He talked at length about his new book See You in the Morning, which tells the story of his life, marriage and the sense of loss he felt following the death of his wife, Diana.

The audience were also treated to entertaining anecdotes about Mr Norman’s many encounters with film stars and directors during his long career as a film critic.
