Brian Johnson originally joined the BBC as an engineer. He spent three years with the army, being trained in radar 'in time to celebrate VE Day', and was then posted to the Middle East where he ran a Forces Broadcasting transmitter. On demobilization he returned to the BBC, joining the Television Service in 1951, becoming a film cameraman and then a producer with outside broadcasters, directing programmes as different as sport and music. Now with BBC TV Science Features, he writes and produces documentaries.
