TV comedy writer John Lloyd CBE to speak at Northern Society of Chartered Accountants Business and Awards Dinner

John is an English television producer and writer best known for his work on such comedy television programmes as Not the Nine O’Clock News, Spitting Image, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Blackadder and QI.

He is currently the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s The Museum of Curiosity, a spin-off of QI.

He worked as a radio producer at the BBC between 1974 and 1978 and created The News Quiz, The News Huddlines, To The Manor Born (with Peter Spence) and Quote… Unquote (with Nigel Rees). He wrote Hordes of the Things (as J. H. W. Lloyd) with Andrew Marshall, co-authored two episodes of Doctor Snuggles with Douglas Adams, and went on to co-write the fifth and sixth episodes of the first radio series of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy with Adams (Douglas Adams wrote all the previous and subsequent episodes solo, as well as the television adaptation – though Lloyd was involved in the TV series as associate producer). He also produced The Burkiss Way.

John then worked as a TV producer at both the BBC and ITV 1979–1989, where he created Not the Nine O’Clock News (with Sean Hardie) and Spitting Image (with Peter Fluck and Roger Law). He also produced all four Blackadder series.

He was originally to have been the host of BBC topical news quiz Have I Got News For You, with the programme initially intended to be called John Lloyd’s Newsround. A pilot episode of the show was recorded under this name in mid-1990, with John hosting alongside team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Merton. He subsequently decided to pull out of hosting the programme full-time and the pilot episode was never broadcast. John was replaced by Angus Deayton as host and the show was renamed Have I Got News for You in time for its debut on BBC2 later that year.

John was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2011 New Year Honours for services to broadcasting.

In support of The Percy Hedley Foundation

The Percy Hedley Foundation provides a wide range of high quality, specialist and personalised care and education support to disabled people and their families. It meets the needs of disabled people with cerebral palsy, communication impairments, sensory impairments and complex learning, social care and therapeutic needs.

The Foundation offers a wide range of services to children, young people and adults. Our education services include Hedley’s Percy Hedley School, Hedley’s Northern Counties School, Hedley’s College and residential and respite care for all ages.

Adult services include residential services and an ever increasing variety of day care services.

We also run a hugely successful Employability Project which has just received additional funding from the Big Lottery to continue its work with employers over the next three years.

The Sports Academy offers a wide range of disability sports catering for all ages and its facilities are used not only by many local disabled groups but also for regional and national events.

To make all of this happen we have a dedicated team of fundraisers, who work all year round to raise money that goes directly to provide these vital services, specialist equipment and facilities in the North East that simply wouldn’t exist without your continued support.
