My first television appearance was in 1984. I was the host of a daily ‘Live’ show for Sky TV. Back then it was called Skytrax and it was a video music based
station. Some would say it was the fore-runner of MTV, Music Television, in Europe.
Bit of a bio …
I moved on to hosting regular shows on Music Box. Broadcasting to Europe via satellite the show was called ‘Nino Firetto Totally Live’.
It was also shown on Granada TV albeit late as part of their night time youth programs.
Then I auditioned for a children’s TV show on ITV. It was to be their flagship children’s program and it was called ‘Splash’. ITV’s answer to BBC’s Blue Peter.
Splash was shown weekly and it was a ‘live’ magazine program. The target audience were children 6 – 16 years of age. It ran 52 weeks of the year for just over 3 years. At the same time I was asked to co host an ITV’s Saturday morning children’s television show called ‘Get Fresh’. Here are a few more. ( I was a busy bunny).
