From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bob Greaves is a former reporter and presenter for Granada Television between 1963 and 1999. He was born on 28 November 1934 in Sale, formerly in Cheshire, now Greater Manchester, and educated at the local Sale Boys' Grammar School, but did not attend university. A journalist, he started on the local newspaper, the Sale and Stretford Guardian, and later on the Nottingham Evening News and the Manchester Daily Mail. He was a presenter of Granada Reports and fronted many local programmes such as Scramble and Family Trees.

Outside of Granada, he is best remembered for a clip on It'll Be Alright on the Night when an elephant began 'investigating' his privates at Chester Zoo in 1981.

Now retired, Bob lives in Altrincham, Cheshire, and has been married four times. On 17 January 2008, he appeared on the BBC One daytime programme Wanted Down Under, in which he visited the coastal city of Cairns in Queensland, Australia with his fourth wife, Sonia, a Naturopathic counsellor, and contemplated a permanent move there.
