Patrick Macnee is a man of many talents beyond the acting endeavours that he is famous for. He has worked in many different areas.

Among these are singing, voiceover work, appearances in music features and promotional videos, documentary presentation and the recording of audiobooks ranging from the adventures of Horatio Hornblower to Jack Higgins thrillers. He has also appeared in advertisements for products as varied as cars, umbrellas, cigarettes and watches, and documentaries and interviews about his career.

He has also been the subject of the celebrated This Is Your Life programme in 1984 which looked back on his life and career and reunited him with friends and family, some of them whom he had not seen in many years. He also appeared several times as a guest on editions of the show which were devoted to friends and colleagues that he had worked with, including that of Ian Hendry in 1978.
