Radio and television personality Sue Becker had an early keep-fit show on Australian TV in the 1960s, called Swing In Time.
Targeting women in the home, she proclaimed; “Exercise is not only good, it’s fun as long as it’s boomphy!”
Becker briefly became a talkback radio host with ABC Tasmania, before returning to the UK, where a version of her programme appeared on the BBC as Boomph With Becker – an exercise programme for people over 60.
Sue Becker died from cancer on 6 May 2007, aged 79.
