Brian Nissen
Born 20 October 1927(1927-10-20)
London, England, UK
Died February 8, 2001 (aged 73)

Brian Nissen (October 20, 1927 in London – February 8, 2001) was a British actor and television continuity announcer.


Nissen made an early appearance in Laurence Olivier's film of Shakespeare's Henry V, and made many TV, film and stage appearances, including The Dam Busters, The New Adventures of Charlie Chan and Sword of Freedom in 1957. However, he is probably best-remembered as an in-vision announcer for Southern Television, where his formal style seemed to sum up the company's aesthetic. He joined Southern at its inception in 1958 and stayed until its demise in 1981, and was kept on by the successor company TVS despite its general policy of breaking with Southern's conservatism. He retired from TVS around 1987.
