'A wonderful man' - Graham Heslop remembered — Graham was a wonderful man: fun, compassionate, a brilliant cameraman and editor because he was a brilliant, instinctive journalist, a wonderful caring father and the stable anchor of every team. Like all our cameramen and women he worked his guts out, took enormous but calculated risks because he believed in what he was doing, and never stopped until the job was done.
