I've seen him in Tesco. He doesn't look in great shape, but I thought that four years ago and he's still here.
Most people would look a complete knob with that tea-cosy, but somehow he pulls it off. Sort of.

It might have been a Money Programme, but whatever, he didn't come across as a terribly worthwhile member of the human race. If anyone knows his name, please post so I can google it & get my facts straight. Or perhaps post a wikipedia link?

Reg Green Not much on the web, but a bit about him here. http://www.developmentstrategies.org/Archives/1977ReviewEastAfrica/rea2.htm I saw the tail end of the same programme funnily enough, about 10 years ago. I think it was an Open University programme about African Economics rather than Panorama.
