The wind up man

Comments Off on The wind up man 05 March 2018

I don’t want to see another “joke” about the death of Trevor Baylis being a wind up. Baylis invented the wind up radio, not for use in wealthy countries like ours, but for third world countries. He was especially keen that the medium of radio could spread the word about the spread of AIDS. It did, it worked, Baylis saved many lives.

His great invention did little for him financially because others came along, effectively ripped off his idea and left him with little by way of profits.

He is not survived by anyone in his family. What he leaves is an incredible legacy, a legacy of life brought about by a man driven to save lives.
