Personal Quote:

I was upset for Rolf Harris, who I know reasonably well, and I'm a great admirer of him; he's a very interesting, talented person. We just let these things go and it's hard to conceive how ghastly it must be. OK, you could say it's ghastly for whoever was involved - or not. But it's pretty ghastly for him, considering the age he is. See more »

Trivia:

A well-known birdwatcher, Oddie wrote "Persecuting Pigeons In Trafalgar Square" and "The Turkey Strangler Song" for ISIRTA. See more »
