These cartoons were originally shown on ITV, in its CITV programming slot. However, Brian also briefly presented the BBC's children's film quiz Screen Test, taking over from original host Michael Rodd between 1979 and 1983. Prior to taking up a writing career Brian worked for many years on local programming in the North West, from It's Trueman to Granada Reports. He also had a stint hosting Granada's film review show, Cinema, taking over from Michael Parkinson.

In 1951, in his youth, he appeared on stage for the Urmston Amateur Operatic Society (now the Urmston Musical Theatre) in a production of Merrie England, playing the role of Big Ben.
