Inspiration - Mat Irvine

Mat Irvine was one of my childhood heros and I'm sure is partially responsible for me getting into Television and animation. Matt appeared on many of the kids TV programmes when I was young from Blue Peter to Multicoloured Swap Shop and explained how to make spaceships and special effects. He was responsible for many of the effects shots in Scifi such as Blake Seven and Dr Who as well as factual programmes such as Think of a Number, Tomorrow's World, QED, Horizon and The Sky at Night.

More recently Matt has been involved in creation of Robot Wars, Techno Games and he's written a whole stack of books on making different kinds of models.
