Birdsall appeared on the BBC’s That Was The Week That Was. He was shown behind a glass panel improvising drawings on it with an ink-marker. While at Cambridge, he illustrated Granta. He also contributed to Private Eye, The Spectator, and The Sunday Times. After he died of leukaemia, aged 27, the BBC made a tribute programme.
During National Service he was selected for officer training at Eaton Hall in March 1955 but did not finish the course.
