In Detail

Since the late sixties Brian has had a great love of mountaineering and a great desire to stand on "the top of the world". He has been on three expeditions to Mount Everest. The first to make the film GALAHAD OF EVEREST, a tribute to George Leigh Mallory. In 1993 he returned to Everest, this time to climb the Southern side where he reached a height of 28,000 feet - the highest a man of his age has achieved without oxygen. He returned to the Northern side in 1996 when the climb was filmed by a Channel 4 Television team as part of the ENCOUNTERS series. Brian has also completed a trek to the North Pole, an expedition to The Lost World in Venezuela, a climb to the summit of Mount Ararat in Turkey at 17,000 feet and a climb to the summit of Mount Kinabalu in Malaysia.


A highly respected actor and adventurer Brian draws on his extensive and varied experience to inspire and motivate audiences. His imposing stature, booming voice and infectious personality make him a distinguished all round entertainer.
