Brian Perkins

  • Zealander journalist
  • Born 1943

Brian Perkins (born 11 September 1943 in Wanganui, New Zealand) is a former senior newsreader on BBC Radio 4. All of Perkins' relatives are New Zealanders, although they refer to England as home. His mother, who played on the local radio station 2XA, gave him a taste "of the fantasy of radio".

This sounds an extraordinary statement to make, but in fact all truth is very ordinary.

It is peoples' fantasies of what is true that is so extraordinary. That that we were born and that we face eternal extinction after death is an extraordinary fantasy.
