Tarlaochan Singh Pothu (1954 - 1957)

I was born in Nairobi, educated at Racecourse Primary and ESS. I left ESS in 1957 for Leeds University where I completed my BA (Hon) in Mass Media. I joined Kenya Broadcasting Corporation in 1962 as Floor Manager and within four years became Producer/Director of programmes. I was then promoted to a position of Controller of TV stations, the only Asian to serve in that position. I took early retirement in 1982.

I then joined United Nations in Kenya as Head of their Documentary department. During my service with VOK and the UN, I met very many celebrities who still are in touch with me. I came to UK in 2001.

I am married to Pritam Kaur. We live in Finsbury Park with my mother who is 84 years old. We have 3 children - Jasminder Kaur, Sandip Singh and Varinder Kaur. All our children are married and we are now happy grandparents too!

- As of October 2006
