Melvin Bragg (1939) was a British tv presenter, best known as the host of the culture show "The South Bank Show".

He was often used to interview famous musicians, artists, authors and other cultural figures. Among the puppets he interviewed are Luciano Pavarotti, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Ronnie Hazelhurst.

A running gag on the show was that Bragg would often be seen snorting milk from a baby bottle, usually before and after he gave an interview. The reason for this strange behaviour was never explained.

[Not true: He had a bottle of nasal decongestant spray, because he always sounded like he was congested.]
