David loves collecting theatrical stories about actors, writers and directors, everything from actors behaving badly to the famous last words of renowned actors and writers. Now he would like to share some of those stories with Channel Radio listeners. An actor for over 50 years, David started as a child actor, working with actors like Tyrone Power, Mai Zetterling, Stephen Boyd, Paul Scofield, Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh. He played Frankie Abbott in the 70s sitcoms Please, Sir! and Fenn Street Gang, and also appeared in the film of Please, Sir! He has appeared in countless theatre and TV productions, including episodes of The Bill, Never the Twain and A Mind to Kill. His films include the Walt Disney version of The Prince and the Pauper, Abandon Ship, starring Tyrone Power, and he played Elvis, Stratford Johns’s nephew in George and Mildred, the Movie. His autobiography Flashback – An Actor’s Life was published in 2006, and includes his childhood memoirs of touring Europe in Titus Andronicus in 1957 with Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh as well as working on Please, Sir!. He has also recorded it as an audio book which is published by Oak Tree Press and is available on Amazon’s Audible.


His published novels include: Mr Micawber Down Under, and three Inspector Lambert thrillers, Each Man Kills, The Wrecking Bar and Missing Persons written in his own name of Meurig Jones. The Ice Cream Time Machine (for children) Willie the Actor, Careless Talk, and More Careless Talk. His Freddie Weston thrillers include Muscle and A Deadly Diversion. His most recent publication is an anthology of short stories Tales from Soho, all set in London’s famous square mile in different decades. The book also contains a brief history of Soho and some of its famous pubs, which David has enjoyed researching over the years. He lives in Tunbridge Wells and has two grown up children.
