Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

Geoffrey Hayes was born March 13, 1942 in Stockport, Cheshire. He is an English television presenter and actor, best known as the host of Thames Television's top-rated children's show Rainbow from 1973 to 1992. Hayes also has writing credits for Rainbow and The Great Pony Raid in 1967. After Rainbow was cancelled, Hayes continued to work in television and pantomime, but it was not enough to earn a living as an actor, so he took a job with the British supermarket chain Sainsbury's, before becoming a taxicab driver, which he is still doing today. In 1996, Hayes appeared in the video for "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing" by Oasis tribute band, NoWaySis. He replicated the role as a taxi driver, just as Patrick Macnee had done in the Oasis video for "Don't Look Back in Anger". In 2005, Hayes appeared on the television show This Morning, talking about the heyday of Rainbow, and also appeared in the all-star line up for the video of Tony Christie with Peter Kay's #1 hit single "Is This the Way to Amarillo?". In 2008, Hayes was part of the Walkers Crisps campaign for Monster Munch. The stated objective of the campaign is to find the missing monster puppets from the original 1980s television advertisements for the popular snack. (Bowker Author Biography)
