Did You Know?
After he [my father] died I had to go through some of his papers, and I found out that when I was at Shrewsbury my school fees were half what he earned. That was how important it was for him to send me to a public school.
He was awarded the Knight Commander of the Order of St. Michael and St. George in the 2019 Queen's New Years Honours List for his services to travel, culture and geography. He is an actor, writer and television presenter.
Famous as a world traveler and star of numerous travelogue documentaries.
