Colin Hogg on A Good Keen Man - Barry Crump

From Lately, 10:45 pm on 4 March 2021

It's a shade over 60 years since Barry Crump published his first book, A Good Keen Man. He was the man behind the wheel of the Toyota Hilux tv ads with actor Lloyd Scott in the 1980's, an author, a hunter, drinker, and a story-teller. Barry Crump could tell a good yarn - and so can Colin Hogg who's something of an expert on Barry Crump - he wrote A Life In Loose Strides which came out four years after Crump died in and he won the 1999 Television Award for scriptwriting for his work on Crump, a feature-length documentary.
