Writing:

I wrote a number of pieces for That Was The Week That Was in the great days of satire, by far the most celebrated of which was A Consumer’s Guide To Religion.

Performed originally by David Frost, it caused reverberations in the pulpit, the House, the press and radio and eventually travelled to New York in cabaret. I have co-authored a TV play, a ghost story; directed my own short play Napoleon, Session 2 and later produced and directed my own full-length stage play Matthew, Mark, Luke and Charlie.

I have recently written and produced a dramatic dialogue for two people called My Heart, in which I play Michael Smith.
