- Favourite Briton.

Born in Wimbledon, London
Born on 23rd of August 1966

He has since made a career out of ‘adventure’ TV series, where he and (on some trips) Ewan McGregor brave the dangers of the road, wilderness, or an extreme lack of tapenade, utterly alone save for a support crew.

Brit Quote:
The dictum that truth always triumphs over persecution is one of the pleasant falsehoods which men repeat after one another till they pass into commonplaces, but which all experience refutes. - John Stuart Mill
