Often referred to as a ‘national treasure’, Sir Michael Terence (Terry) Wogan was a leading media personality in the UK from the late 1960s until his tragic passing in 2015 .


Terry's extensive television credits include his live chat show series Wogan, which he presented for seven years on BBC One, the Eurovision Song Contest, the National Lottery Live and Children in Need. In April 1972 he took over the breakfast show on BBC Radio 2, amassing an audience of up to 7.6 million. In 2005, he received an honorary knighthood from the Queen of England. 

BBC Radio 2’s Wake Up To Wogan was the most listened to programme on British radio. Regular listeners to the show were often referred to collectively as TOGs (Terry's Old Geezers/Gals). The TOGs identified stereotypical traits of the elderly, such as absent-mindedness, cynicism and befuddlement at modern society's habits.

In an exciting collaboration with celebrated newspaper cartoonist Mac (aka Stanley McMurtry MBE), Terry's famous TOGs have been brought to life in an series of witty cartoons which perfectly capture their satirical essence.
