    Commenting on panel games.
    On What’s My Line and Juke Box Jury. “Both of them are conducted by ringmasters of exceptional professional competence. Eamonn Andrews and David Jacobs seem impervious to the temptations which beset many other quiz masters. They reveal no mannerisms, they exercise an easy authority and although they radiate good humour, they never indulge in that deadly sin of broadcasting bonhomie.”
