He has, however, worked in a variety of positions, including gravedigger, hospital porter, civil servant, and teacher, and has a Ph.D. in History and Education from the New University of Ulster. in Educational Psychology and Social Psychology Bob is passionate about local history and folklore, and has written and taught on the subject. He is a regular contributor to radio and has co-hosted heritage and history programs on television. It is reported that Bob now lives in north Antrim with his teacher wife and two small children; however, it is difficult to be certain because he is only seen 'between the lights' (at twilight), and then by a select few.
