The Old Almondburians
Roger Dowling started his education at Moldgreen County School in 1946 and joined Almondbury Grammar School in 1952. He subsequently studied electrical engineering and electronics for four years at the Royal Radar Establishment College of Electronics in Malvern before joining the BBC.

During the following 25 years, he worked variously in London, Leeds, Bristol and Manchester, where in due course he became head of engineering and programme services. Roger left the BBC in the late 1980s and became a director of the business support organisation Nimtech. In 2000, he became a founding member of the specialist business conference company Washingtondowling Associates Ltd.

He is now retired but is Media Editor for the Old Almondburians' Society as well as playing the violin in two local orchestras.
