Not Easy Being Green was a series which followed the family as they moved down to their smallholding in Cornwall and their attempt to live as green a life as possible.

After making it all the way to the MasterChef final in 2010, Dick turned his sights to the sea, filming The Hungry Sailors, where he sailed around the UK coastline with his son James, sourcing and cooking local food.

Dick has also recently filmed Dirty Rotten Survival, a show on National Geographic, filmed in The Berkshire Mountains, USA.

Dick is a very relatable and warm character, making him ideal for any type of event.
