BBC Presenter Magenta Devine Dies At 61



TV presenter Magenta Devine has died at the age of 61. According to her family, the broadcaster - who was known for her trademark black sunglasses, stylish attire and husky voice - died on Wednesday morning at a hospital in London while undergoing treatment following a short illness.

Her family said she was 'deeply loved for her extraordinary kindness and generosity'.

Born Kim Taylor in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire in 1957, Devine became a star in the 1980s on Channel 4's short-lived but memorable cult youth show Network 7.

She then went on to host the BBC's innovative factual show Reportage and the Rough Guides travel series.
