The Times obit says he "re recorded" lines for the "Two Tribes" single rather than the original lines from Protect & Survive being sampled.

Is he really dead?[edit]

I'm fully aware of the...unreliablity of Wikipedia. Is this actuaaly true or Vandalism? [Unsigned]

Yes. Check the footnotes for obituaries. A sad loss. What a man. David L Rattigan 16:00, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
Are E4 still using his voice in their promos or have they just got someone who sounds like him? EddieBernard 08:57, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
As they are pre-recorded, I would assume the originals are still in use. --Kiand 09:03, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
As of 4 February 2007 they are still using his voice, and the voice clips refer to items which surely can't have been recorded before he died - unless E4 have amazing planning. I can only assume they've got someone who sounds like him. It's all a bit strange. Arcturus 23:08, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
It's Peter Dickson now on E4, and he sounds just like Patrick Allen. 22:26, 15 April 2007 (UTC)


Wasn't he in a series of adverts for Barratt Homes in the 80s? He'd arrive by helicopter and then do a piece to camera. (talk) 10:28, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Thank you Youtube! It was actually earlier. An Allen/Barratt advert from 1979. (talk) 10:30, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
