He has also reported for ITV's World in Action and is the currently the BBC's anchorman in Manchester, presenting North West Tonight (once the home of Stuart Hall!) since 1997. He presented The Krypton Factor for approximately 1,184 years.


He had a bit part in Prime Suspect 5.

He has interviewed eight Prime Ministers.

Presented his own short-lived chat show in 1974, The Gordon Burns Hour for Ulster Television - only really noted as the first programme to link-up with RTE, their colleagues in the Republic, for a joint broadcast with Gay Byrne's The Late Late Show.

Whilst at Ulster, he also had his hand in comedy, co-producing a local series called Zoom In in 1968.
