    I've known and worked with Harry for over 20 years. Now Harry was always a joy to work with and when as an editor he walked into an edit suite you just knew that it was going to be easy. He knew what wanted and along with his relaxed manner there was always a story about something interesting. He always had a friendly manner and a twinkle in his eye. I got the impression he simply loved being a journalist and loved working with the ITN and then the ITV family. After he formally left ITN he would be back on weekends, and then after that at Millbank. It was always a pleasure to see him and I for one will miss him greatly. One of the greats Harry was - one of the greats.

    Harry had done it all but was too modest to ever consider himself above helping others.

    When I heard of his passing I immediately remembered an evening years ago at an awards ceremony when I didn’t know many people in the room and so Harry took me around, introducing me to everyone. And I mean everyone! Harry knew them all and boy did they all know and love Harry Smith.

    That stuck with me: their faces lit up when they saw Harry coming over. The biggest names in the room wanted to shake his hand and buy him a drink.

    He went out of his way to help me on more than one occasion. Whenever anyone portrays the ‘mean’ journalist stereotype, I try to tell them of the best, kindest people in our industry and I always mention Harry Smith. 

    My condolences are with his family.
