Cheetah Cubs, 3 months old
I took this picture a couple of years ago at Cheetah Outreach, Spier Wine Estate, Capetown. The one with the darker markings, looking as though he is in Feline heaven, is a King Cheetah. (There are only about 28 of them in the whole of South Africa. Their markings are caused by a Recessive gene in both parents).
I was invited to wingwalk in aid of the RAFA Benevolent fund. So I took to the air on the Press Day of the Shoreham Air show back in July. We have some footage taken from the wing of the plane as I flew over the sea at Brighton, keep coming back here as at some point we'll get it transferred and up on the site for you to see.

It is now a trifle out of date and out of print although it can still be purchased on Amazon. Perhaps I should begin work on the last few years which have been action packed.

25 August, 2014: PIGGY BACK JOURNALISM
I now understand that the original article in the Saturday Mail has been picked up, picked to pieces and put together again in a manner which has scewed the emphasis. I suppose because I was a newsreader the journalists are trying to make my criticism of poor speech a sour grapes attack on the... Read more...
25 August, 2014: I DON'T BELIEVE IT
One of the kind people who wrote in support of my criticism of poor diction told me that the BBC does have a Voice training department which costs £1,000,000 (unless he got his 0's incorrect) per annum. I simply do not believe it. Please tell me it isn't true. If it is - what a... Read more...
