The much loved man, created the series millions of people around the world tuned in to watch and we have a lot to thank him for. Always generous with his time he was a great friend of this society and it was my pleasure to of been in contact with him during my time with the society. He will be sadly missed and all our thoughts are with earls family and friends at this time.
