Bob Block

Television Writer
19 July 1921 to 16 April 2011

Although his writing career began on radio favourite Life With The Lyons, extending to mainstream television comedy The Frost Report (1966-67) and Dave Allen At Large (1971-79), Block’s real legacy lies in children’s television. He wrote for Crackerjack (1964-73) and created the series Pardon My Genie (1972-73) and Rentaghost (1967-84).
