Birmingham: The Sixties Revisited.
I am probably best known as the author of several best-selling books and for the three years I was quizmaster and co-writer of the top-rated BBC Midlands TV series "KNOW YOUR PLACE."
However, I have also been a TV and radio character actor, professional comedian, showbiz/jazz book and record reviewer, TV & radio commercial voice-over artist, 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards trombonist and the voice behind several cartoons and children's toys etc.
