Barry Bucknell 1912 - 2003

Handyman-television presenter
born in:
Hampstead, Camden, London, Greater London, England, United Kingdom

His skill for designing gadgets such as a suitcase on wheels and a car for drivers with no legs, combined with the dawn of a consumer society and more people owning their own homes, led to his being hired to contribute practical tips for housewives to the afternoon television programme About the Home (1956–7).
