He is probably best known for his regular appearances on the 1960s and 1970s British children's television show Vision On demonstrating his latest inventions with Tony Hart and Sylvester McCoy.

He later appeared in Jigsaw and the 1985 Classic BBC TV series Eureka amongst other television series.

He is a prolific constructor of bicycles and an inventor of strange and wondrous devices, amongst which was a collection formerly to be found in the Inventions Bar, Newcastle Upon Tyne.

In an interview with the b3ta website he stated that he was an atheist and a teetotaller.[1]
