Tom Vernon, who has died aged 74, was a versatile and engaging writer, producer and presenter, known best for being the Fat Man on a Bicycle. In this role, he journeyed charmingly around the world for radio and television across three decades, from Scandinavia to Argentina – a sort of Bill Bryson on a bike. He soon moved to television and made Fat Man Goes Norse in 1987. For Fat Man in Argentina (1990) he was presented with a medal by the Argentinian government for improving relations between the two countries. He also made Fat Man in the Kitchen (1985-86), one episode of which prompted outrage when the family cat jumped on to his chopping board.
