Robert Fripp (a.k.a. Robert S. P. Fripp) - A short biography:
Portsmouth, U.K. was not a good place to be born in 1943. There was a war on. Within four months my mother was dead, while my father was at sea, escorting Murmansk-bound convoys. So, as an infant I spent much time in my grandparents' bomb shelter where my nanny, Kate Bryan, sang Welsh hymns to drown the din of sirens and ack-ack. Those Welsh hymns gave me a musical start: at the age of eight I won a choral scholarship into the choir of Salisbury Cathedral. Five years there gave me a great education. Next, Canford School in Wimborne, Dorset; later, the University of Bristol.
In 1965, Carol Burtin married me in her hometown, Stony Point, N.Y. Next, I produced programs for CBC-TV in Toronto and spent a decade as the series producer of CBC-TV's flagship public affairs series, 'the fifth estate'. Later I set up and edited 'IBM Visions' magazine on high-performance computing. Japanese public broadcaster NHK retained me to re-edit and re-voice Japanese science and wildlife films: NHK needed better competitive products for English-language markets.
Writing always played a role. My books? Eleanor of Aquitaine dictates her memoirs in 'Power of a Woman: Memoirs of a Turbulent Life'. My tragedy, 'Dark Sovereign', is absolutely true to the English of 1626. It beats Hamlet to become the longest play written in Renaissance English. Two volumes of 'Wessex Tales: Eight thousand years in the life of an English village' offer 40 short stories.
