Sir Roger Moore, CBE (Monaco)
Born Clapham, London, 1927, the son of a London policeman, Roger Moore attended Hackford Road Elementary School and then Battersea Grammar School. Evacuated to Worthing at the outbreak of World War II, he returned to London in 1943 and after leaving school worked as a tracer/filler/office boy with the animation company, Publicity Picture Productions. He was fired after a short time! In 1944 he was accepted by the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and attended for three terms. He then joined the Cambridge Arts Theatre Repertory Company. In 1945 he was called up for National Service and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant and then promoted to Captain in the Combined Services Entertainment. At the end of his Army service he worked as an assistant stage manager at the BBC Studios at Alexander Palace and supplemented his salary by working as an advertising model. Then came a small part in the West End production of Mister Roberts and understudying David Tomlinson in The Little Hut. There followed his American debut and he appeared in A Pin to See the Peepshow on Broadway. It was then that Hollywood beckoned with an MGM contract. In 1957/58 he played the title role in Ivanhoe, returning to England for a total of thirty nine episodes. When he returned to Hollywood in 1958 he was put under contract by Warner Bros. and starred in the TV series The Alaskans (thirty six episodes), Maverick (nineteen episodes) and in 1961 at the end of his contract he left Hollywood. In 1962 came his big break when he was cast as The Saint, the most successful TV series at that time (one hundred and fourteen episodes). Roger Moore then starred in, alongside Tony Curtis, The Persuaders playing the part of Lord Brett Sinclair. Then came the pinnacle of Moore's career in 1972 when he was cast in the title role of the massively successful James Bond, the greatest hero of them all. He continued in this cinematic series for a total of seven productions, slotting in a dozen feature films as the Bond schedules permitted. Roger Moore is a resident of Monaco with his wife Kristina (Lady Moore). He has three children from his former marriage, Deborah (born 1963), Geoffrey (born 1966) and Christian (born 1973). A grand-daughter, Ambra, was born in December, 1998 (Geoffrey and LouLou) and a second grand-daughter, Jessie, was born in September, 1999 (Christian and Heidi). Since 1991, when he was appointed a Special Ambassador to UNICEF, Roger Moore, accompanied by his wife Kristina, has toured the world on field trips and speaking at fundraising events. In 1999 he received the title Goodwill Ambassador to UNICEF. Roger Moore was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) in the Queen’s New Year Honors 1999. In May, 2003 a third grand-daughter, Mia, was born (Geoffrey and Loulou), and a few weeks later Roger Moore was awarded a Knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honors for his charity work. Recent years have seen Roger Moore concentrating on his UNICEF work, but continuing to work in film, TV and on stage when time allows. Most recently he has voiced a number of animated characters in films Here Comes Peter Cottontail, The Fly Who Loved Me, Agent Crush, and Cats And Dogs II. He has also appeared in London’s West End and on Broadway as special guest in The Play What I Wrote. In December, 2009, a grandson, Tristan, was born (Christian and new wife Lara) and in November, 2011 another grandson, Maximilian, was born (Christian and Lara). Roger Moore represents the terminal evolution of the Edwardian hero, the product of the English public school system, capriciousness and a conspiratorial sense of humor.

Keith Pritchard (Alverstone Garden Village, Isle of Wight)
Keith was born in a small village in North Wales and was educated at the local Grammar School progressing to University where he studied science to degree level and gained diplomas as additional qualifications. His interest in travel began at this time when he hitch-hiked to Denmark and Sweden and then on to the south of Italy...all on the princely sum of £32.00! His career includes time in education where he successfully practiced as a teacher, administrator, trainer and inspector. Early on in his career an unexpected letter offered opportunity, alongside his main work, as an Intelligence Officer working for a government department. Fascinating insights into another world related to defense, added flavor to an already interesting life. In mid-career new horizons in the field of psychology beckoned and further study led to an MA and a Doctorate in Psychology by research at the University of Southampton. Keith has spent time at three universities in Spain, one in Quito in Ecuador and also at St John’s, Oxford. Following retirement, he now enjoys his role as a Destination Speaker providing illustrated talks which include a balanced mix of information on countries/ports/destinations and their culture, geography and history. He calls on his own extensive world travels thus bringing authenticity and personal experience to his talks. His continuing interest in all things Spanish includes the works of Gaudi and Picasso, an extensive knowledge of the Great Explorers of the New World and the history of Spain from the Phoenicians to the current day.
