David was a member of the BBC Radio Drama Company from 1975 – 1977. He has also taken part in numerous radio broadcasts as a performer and commentator.
During his spell at the BBC David performed with such luminaries as Paul Scofield, Roy Dotrice, Anthony Quayle and John Gielgud in a range of drama productions from classical to modern theatre.
In the late eighties Superman was adapted for BBC Radio 4 and David was involved. Due to the huge success of this and its sequel Batman: The Lazarus Syndrome, the BBC commissioned a six part radio drama The Adventures of Superman. It would run for two series and have both a cassette and CD release.
