David Bellamy - gone.

I don;t suppose many here will know but David Bellamy was a Seven owner - I did a piece on him seems like a million years ago. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-50752089

I'd forgotten all about the reason he'd disappeared (climate change comments) until it was mentioned on the news this morning.  I would image most have by now and he will rightly be remembered for being the affable, likeable guy he always came across as on TV.

I'd forgotten about that piece David, thanks for the reminder.  It's in the LF archive here:

I read in The Times obit that the poor old bugger had run out of TV work as soon as he stood for James Goldsmith's Referendum Party in 1992   .

Thanks. I didn't know he had a Seven.

I didn't like his style but thought that he was working hard in a good cause both as a presenter and campaigner.

Then he made a fool of himself over climate change.

And I've just discovered that he was a fan of homoeopathy.

I recall he was chased off Islay by enraged locals.
