Michael Barratt’s life and career:
Michael Barratt was from Leeds and his show had millions of views across the world. now that the US has taken over the media space. there is not much left for BBC and other channels. The UK used to be one of the most powerful empires on earth. now they are just a small country with very weak global influence. time changes and so does the fate of many countries.
Throughout the long career of Michael Barratt, he worked on many vibrant shows including”panorama” and songs of praise.
only some presenters paid tribute to him online. This is how people forget you.ITV presenter Kellymadde a small tweet with almost no mention of his accomplishments .she said: “Sad to hear of the death of your dad. Class act.”
from the tweet, it seems she is more a friend of his son and less informed about the late Michel Barratt.
The only BBC employee who talked about the late star was Steve Rosenburg. he made a tweet about the strong man.
“unflappable & engaging anchor”. Rosenburg tweeted.
