He started his teaching career at Kimbolton School and subsequently taught at Bradfield College. His career as a broadcaster began in after a chance meeting with Maurice Edelstonwho lived in nearby Reading. In his early years he commentated on group matches in the World Cupheld in Englandbut in,and he was the main commentator on the World Cupcovering the final. Along with his regular weekly football commentaries, Jones covered almost every major football event from the late s until his death, including the Drie Kleine Kleutertjes - Kinderkoor* o.l.v.

Meindert Bosklopper - 50 Beste Kinderliedjes Cup Final ofthe replay but not the first match in and all finals from to He described victories for English clubs in the European Cup finals of,, andand in he gave an eloquent description of the Heysel Stadium disaster. As a presenter rather than a commentator, he fronted the BBC's coverage of Wimbledon during the s and s, and frequently presented the BBC's Saturday afternoon radio sports coverage Sports Service untilSport on Two from then until from the late s to the late s.

He was the BBC's regular commentator on swimming for many years, covering the sport at many Olympic and Commonwealth Gamesoften with Anita Lonsbrough.

He occasionally commentated on cricketand often covered the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race which turned out to be his last time commentating on a sporting event.

As a serious broadcaster with a mellifluous voice and a deep sense of gravitas, he was regularly called upon to describe the opening and closing ceremonies at events such as the Olympic Games and World Cup, and also covered non-sporting events such as the wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer inand that of Prince Andrew to Sarah Ferguson in He also lent his talents to coverage of the State Opening of Parliament. Almost unrivalled for his ability to paint word pictures and capture the excitement of a great occasion, Jones was still regarded as a great broadcaster in the late s, despite the rise of younger, brasher commentators who did not share his Standard English accent.

He was deeply affected and saddened by the Hillsborough disaster inwhich he witnessed from the commentary box, and gave an emotional description of the memorial service for the victims of the disaster, reciting the words of " You'll Never Walk Alone ". He continued to broadcast regularly, but it has been claimed that he never fully recovered emotionally and personally from the experience of witnessing the Hillsborough disaster, and on 31 March he collapsed on the BBC launch during his commentary on the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race.

He was hospitalised at the end of the race, but died the following day. He was universally mourned as a great broadcaster and, perhaps, the last of a line, for soon after his death sports broadcasting in the UK underwent a revolution with Baba Yaga (Hut On Fowls Legs) - Tomita - Pictures At An Exhibition arrival of Sky TV and of BBC Radio 5 later Five Livetaking a more informal and, arguably, more populist and less eloquent style.

Jones was married with two sons, one of whom, Stuart Jones, became football correspondent for The Times. In my opinion, nobody before or since has ever broadcast with greater descriptive brilliance that Peter did on the day of the Hillsborough disaster.

He was absolutely exceptional, and is still missed 20 years after his death. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article does not cite any sources.

    May 10,  · It was Arsenal’s first title for 18 years but, five days later, the team would create real history. Eddie Kelly and, most memorably, Charlie George scored as Mee’s side came from behind to beat Liverpool in the FA Cup Final. They had become only the fourth team in history to do the Double and only the second in the 20th century.
