From the moment of leaving school at 16 to learn spectacle making, Neal Arden has truly been 'a man of many parts'. After service in the British South Africa Mounted Police in Rhodesia, he was accepted to study drama at RADA, which led to a long and varied career in theatre, film, radio and television. He has appeared with many of the greats of their day from Richard Tauber, Leslie Henson, Trevor Howard and Dulcie Grey to Roger Moore, Harry Secombe, Prunella Scales, Donald Sinden and Doris Day. He played roles in many of the great classic TV series such as Maigret, Ivanhoe, Z Cars, Randall and Hopkirk, Dixon of Dock Green and I Claudius. Arguably he is best known for being a founder presenter of BBC radio's "Housewives Choice", which he continued to host for 20 years. During that time he also had his own radio programme on Sunday nights, namely "Quiet Rhythm" which ran in series for the same length of time. He has written plays performed by stars such as Arnold Ridley and Robert Morley and composed over 40 songs recorded by various artists including Petula Clark, Cleo Laine, Russ Conway and Paul Hazel. Neal has also worked tirelessly for charity during his career, and now in his ninety-sixth year has retired to East Anglia with his wife Julia. He is without doubt the fittest man of his age in Britain, fully involved in village life and still regularly enjoying a round of golf.
