South African born Stuart Brown was a respected veteran of Springbok Radio, his voice a familiar one to the listenership. His best remembered radio work was undoubtedly on the classic Springbok series No Place to Hide, portraying Sergei, a regular character. He also featured as Henry Simon in Address Unknown, another popular Springbok Radio show.

Film roles in South Africa included Killer Force (1975), the supporting cast of which sounds like a roll-call of Springbok Radio personnel, and Shangani Patrol (1970), as Dr Leander Starr Jameson.

Stuart Brown sadly passed away several years ago, but is remembered in South Africa, not least for his portrayal of Chesa Labuschagne - a character in the earliest South African television drama series, The Villagers (1976-1978).
