Richard Briers on the cover of Radio Times – photos

Following the sad death of The Good Life star, we look back at his starring roles on the front of the magazine

The sad death of Richard Briers at the weekend prompted us to recall the many and varied roles the actor has played down the years (not to mention that one particular role). It also reminded us that Briers had featured on the cover of Radio Times on multiple occasions times during his 50-year television career.


He made the front of the magazine twice for 60s sitcom Marriage Lines as well as once each for Birds on the Wing, Goodbye, Mr Kent and, of course, The Good Life.

Take a look back at Richard Briers’ RT cover appearances in the gallery below.
