Nick Ross, the older brother of Jimmy Ross, was born in Edinburgh on 28th March, 1863. A talented footballer he became captain of Hearts at the age of 20.

Major William Sudell, the manager of a local factory, became the secretary of Preston North End. Sudell decided to improve the quality of the team by importing top players from other areas. In 1883 he persuaded Nick Ross to join the club. As well as paying him to play for the team he arranged for him to obtain a good job as a slater in Preston.

Ross was made captain of Preston North End and over the next few years developed an excellent reputation as one of the best defenders playing in England.

Preston played against West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup Final in 1887-88. According to reports, Preston was much the better team and Bob Roberts, the WBA goalkeeper made good saves from Fred Dewhurst, Jimmy Ross, John Goodall and George Drummond. Dewhurst did eventually score but WBA won the game 3-1 and Nick Ross was denied a winning medal.

At the end of that season Ross was transferred to Everton. It is claimed he was paid £10 a month, nearly twice that of most top players. As a result of this move Ross, unlike his brother, Jimmy Ross, missed being a member of the team that won the Football League title and FA Cup in 1888-89.

Ross returned to Preston North End after only one season away and was a member of the side that won the league in 1889-90. During his second spell he played at centre forward and scored 25 goals in 95 games. Ross had health problems and was forced to retire in 1893.

Nick Ross died of consumption in 1894.

Nick Ross investigates the secret history of Orme Square

Some histories are sweeping narratives encompassing nations, continents or empires. This talk is about a dozen houses. Yet despite its tiny canvas – a nondescript field which scarcely warranted a name even after it was built on – its story is a fragment of London’s story, reflecting the city’s phenomenal transformation from a town of a million people in 1800 to more than six million by 1900, and ballooning from barely three square miles to almost 700, becoming the world’s most populous metropolis and, within another turbulent century, a truly global city.

It is a journey in microcosm through layer upon layer of building and decay, of financial boom and bust, and into the lives of generations of mostly forgotten residents. But it also unearths more than its fair share of famous people, scandals, and even spies. This is detective work inspired by enforced idleness of the Covid lockdown a voyage of discovery which proves that history, like science, is provisional: the more you look the more you find and, the more you find, the more you discover your certainties are misplaced.

Nick Ross is a veteran current affairs and documentary broadcaster best known for the crime appeals show Crimewatch. He is an independent director of Imperial Healthcare NHS Trust and president, chairman or board member of several national charities and inquiries. He chairs the Westminster Hate Crime Commission and, most importantly in this context, he is a resident in Bayswater.

He began working part-time for the BBC in Northern Ireland while still a student and reported on the violence as the Troubles became acute. He returned to London and presented British radio programmes such as Radio 4's The World at One , PM and The World Tonight , and moved to TV in 1979 as a reporter for Man Alive on BBC Two. He made several documentaries in a brief stint as a director and producer. The Biggest Epidemic of Our Times was a powerful polemic on road accidents which was made for Man Alive but transferred to BBC1. It was later described as a broadcast that "would transform road safety," [6] and according to another commentator, by reframing the whole concept of road safety Ross's campaigning changed public attitudes and public policy to such an extent that, "in significant consequence British mortality rates of people under 50 are among the lowest in the world." [7] Ross also produced and directed two programmes on drug addiction, The Fix and The Cure, most famous for following an addict called Gina. He presented a law series Out of Court in this period as well as large-scale studio debates.

He was on the presenting team of a short-lived early evening news programme Sixty Minutes which began in 1983, and was intended as a replacement for Nationwide , but proved an unwieldy format. In the same period he was a founder presenter of the BBC's Breakfast Time on BBC 1, the first regular such programme in this timeslot, from its launch in early 1983, with Frank Bough and Selina Scott, as well as launching Watchdog as a prime time stand-alone consumer series.

Ross in the BBC Crimewatch studio

Crimewatch (based on a German prototype) began in 1984, and made him a household name in the UK and his regular sign-off, "Don't have nightmares, do sleep well", became a well-known catch-phrase. In 1989 he was asked to present BBC Radio 4's Tuesday morning phone-in, the name of which was changed from Tuesday Call to Call Nick Ross . He resigned in 1997 for reasons that have never been made clear, but not before picking up an award as best radio presenter of the year. During the 1991 Gulf War he was a volunteer presenter on the BBC Radio 4 News FM service. [8]

He was attracted by Channel 4 for a time to present A Week in Politics, and then moved to cover BBC Two's live broadcasts of parliament in Westminster with Nick Ross . At one stage in the 1990s he was often doing three mainstream live programmes a day such as Call Nick Ross, Westminster with Nick Ross and Crimewatch. As one of the star BBC presenters he was used widely in a variety of formats including chat shows, travel programmes and debates, but he was most at home in live studios, often orchestrating large-scale debates.

His Crimewatch co-presenter, Jill Dando, was murdered in 1999 and Ross started a campaign to commemorate her, culminating in the establishment of the Jill Dando Institute of Crime Science at University College London.

In 2000 Ross presented a general knowledge quiz called The Syndicate , aired on BBC 1 which pitted two teams across three rounds on general knowledge, [9] but the show's format could not compete with The Weakest Link .

In late 2007, Ross left Crimewatch, soon followed by his co-presenter Fiona Bruce. The replacement presenter, Kirsty Young, was 21 years younger than Ross and the BBC were accused of ageism over these changes. [10] His 23 years as the main Crimewatch anchor marks him as one of the longest-serving presenters of a continuous series in TV history.

He spent a year creating a major BBC One series The Truth About Crime , [11] which aired in mid-2009 and explained the fall in crime rates and how offending can be reduced further. The show was described by The Times as an "outstanding. sane, insightful and compellingly argued documentary series." [12]

He has since been making other TV shows, such as Secrets of the Crime Museum and science programmes for BBC Radio 4 including an acclaimed re-examination of the Chernobyl disaster "Fallout: the Legacy of Chernobyl". [13] His written journalism has included a re-examination of the Air France Flight 447 air crash that provoked controversy on both sides of the Atlantic. [14] [15]

He made a guest appearance on Are You Being Served? , playing himself in the episode "The Pop Star" , the last episode to be broadcast in April 1985, and has frequently appeared on other shows, including Have I Got News for You .

Ross was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2021 Birthday Honours for services to broadcasting, charity and crime prevention. [16]

Pieces range from a tubular sandstone bench, which rests on column-like supports, to a circular table and stool made from the same material.

The collection also includes terracotta pots reminiscent of Roman urns, a double-sided circular mirror held in a sandstone base, and a looped wool rug. Ross used Alder wood to create a set of display trays and plates &ndash a material that would have been used in house building at the time.

"The objects presented carry hints of the Caledonian culture, yet contain a certain 'Romanised' aesthetic, as comment on the Roman influence on our understanding of these people and time period," explained Ross.

"By mixing storytelling with physical objects, it questions our current situation in which cultures are sacred, or that national identities are static and thus must be protected from outside influences," he added.

The designer has previsouly created a marble tealight holder for Danish design company Menu, and was the winner of Muuto's annual Nordic design award for his Tension lamp &ndash a light that bends forward as if being held on a fishing rod.

The collection was shown at the Atelier Clerici exhibition at Palazzo Clerici during Milan design week 2016, which took place from 12 to 17 April.

Nick Ross (soccer player, 1863)

Nicholas John "Nick" Ross (born January 2, 1863 in Edinburgh , † August 7, 1894 in Preston ) was a Scottish football player . His greatest successes were in 1890 winning the English championship with Preston North End and the final participation in the FA Cup two years earlier with the same club.

Nick Ross played for Heart of Midlothian in his hometown of Edinburgh . He led this team as captain at the age of only 20 . This was followed by an offer from William Sudell , who was not only club secretary at the English club Preston North End , but was also able to offer potential players a job as an entrepreneur. Ross, who found a job as a roofer , joined the early professional football club in the north-west of England and, as captain in defense, would make a name for himself as one of the best defensive players in English football. Above all, his good game overview and his ability to “read a game” made him an above-average soccer player of his time. In 1888 he was finally with his team in the FA Cup final, but lost there despite superiority with 1: 2 against West Bromwich Albion . For a supposedly weekly payment of 10 pounds, Everton subsequently secured the services of Nick Ross. This salary was well above the average for football players at the time, but as a result of the move, Ross, unlike his brother Jimmy, missed the double of the English championship and FA Cup of his old club.

After just one season, Nick Ross returned to Preston. He played from then on as a striker and helped that the "Lilywhites" in 1890 could defend the league title. Health problems brought his career to a quick end in 1893, and Nick Ross died of tuberculosis just a year later .

Maybach Music Group, &aposGod Forgives&apos Nominated for Grammy

In the same year, Ross launched Maybach Music Group (MMG). The label would achieve great success, releasing albums by Meek Mill, Wale and Omarion. Appearances by Ross and his signings on other artists&apos tracks would almost always be accompanied by a "Maybach Music" drop — a vocal tagline by the supermodel Jessica Gomes.

Running a label didn’t appear to slow down Ross’ personal output. Teflon Don in 2010 was followed by the MMG compilation Self Made Vol. 1 a year later, and then by God Forgives, I Don’t in 2012. During this time he worked with Kanye West, Gucci Mane, CeeLo Green, Drake, Dr. Dre and Andre 3000. 

God Forgives was nominated for a best-album Grammy in 2013, and he followed with Mastermind and Hood Billionaire, both in 2014, but reviews were mixed and sales only modest — perhaps a sign that he was releasing too much music too quickly, diluting the quality. Album No. 8, Black Market, came out at the close of 2015. His ninth, Rather You Than Me, dropped in 2017.
