He was the host of I’ve Never Seen Star Wars on both radio and TV, a regular on panel shows from QI to Just A Minute; and has even cropped up on Question Time, Newsnight and This Week. In The Joy of Techs he met his friend Alexis Conran’s enthusiasm for the latest gadgets with his own tech-scepticism.

    My personal feedback was that he was brilliant. He came and found us in the crew dining room and had a chat to ensure he had the audience profile right. He ended up staying on stage for quite a bit longer as he was going down such a storm.
