Dr Malcolm Brodie, who has died aged 86, was a distinguished journalist who although Scots-born spent his entire working life in Northern Ireland. It was a truly remarkable career that spanned seven decades and 14 World Cups.
Born in Glasgow, the teenage Malcolm and his brother were evacuated on the outbreak of war to Portadown, County Armagh, to live with their grandparents. It was a move that would define Malcolm's entire life.
