Monday's On This Day
Comic actor and writer Mel Smith died of a heart attack, aged 60 on this day in 2013. Smith formed a lasting partnership with co-performer peninsula resident Griff Rhys Jones with whom he set up the independent television company, Talkback Productions. Smith was known for the sketch shows 'Alas Smith and Jones' and 'Not The Nine O'Clock News'.
