Richard Bebb

Richard Bebb (1927–2006) was educated at Highgate School and Trinity College, Cambridge. He became an actor in 1947 in Michael Redgrave’s Macbeth and then spent two years in repertory at Buxton and Croydon, where he met his future wife, the late Gwen Watford. They married in 1952 and had two sons.

From 1950 he worked regularly in all the theatrical media. He appeared in a handful of West End plays, over a thousand broadcasts, including sharing the narration with Richard Burton in the BBC recording of Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood and also almost 200 television plays, including Alan Bennett’s A Question of Attribution; among other television appearances were Barchester Towers and Agatha Christie’s A Murder Has Been Announced. His one important film appearance was as the successful cricketer in Terence Rattigan’s The Final Test.

He owned the largest collection of historic 78s of opera singers in England and lectured at Yale, Harvard, Princetown and the Smithsonion on theatrical and musical subjects. He discovered the unknown cylinder recordings of Sir Henry Irving.
