Few are finer. We have worked with Benedict Allen a few times over the last three years. Ubiquitous in appeal and utterly genuine in character, he has an uncanny knack of taking his story and making it sound personal to every member of the audience.
Relieved of noteriety by the arrival of the 'other Benedict', he was a TV star much earlier. In fact, he was probably the first Reality TV star. Many of us watched his youthful exploits on prime time television. All alone against the wilderness, marvelling at his tenacity, at his determination and all the whilst, wondering at his sanity.
