In 2004, Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden were co-presenters of Channel 4’s daytime game show, Beat the Nation, in which they indulged in usual game show “banter”, but took the quiz itself seriously.
He has appeared on stage in Australia and England, usually as a middle class Englishman. Around 1982, he branched out into pantomime as the Dame in Dick Whittington.
He is also the author (and co-author) of several humorous books based mainly around his radio and television work and the sports of golf and cricket. He also took part in the Pro-Celebrity Golf television series (opposite Bruce Forsyth).
Brooke-Taylor appeared on the premiere episode of the BBC golf-based game show Full Swing.
