Anyone know much about him?

I've only got a vague memory of him on Parkinson (i think) finding the proverbial needle in a haystack with a woman from the audience...

His real name was Ronald Markham. He was married to Ursula Markham, who runs a hypnotherapy training school. He was best known as a hypnotist.

He is mentioned, not very favourably, in Mind, Myth and Magick by TA Waters.
