From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dave Benson Phillips (born 3 February 1965) is a British children's television presenter who gained high popularity as the host of the children's game show Get Your Own Back, shown on BBC One (later CBBC) between 1991 and 2003. In 2005 he was among the select few honoured by induction into the Children's Walk of Fame.



Between 1989 and 1997, Dave Benson Phillips was also a presenter on Playdays, especially its memorable "Playground Stop" segment, in which he enabled viewers to become knowledgeable about Makaton, a basic sign language which is typically used with special needs children. After Get Your Own Back discontinued production, he kept a busy work schedule in children's and preschool educational television, particularly for the BBC and Playhouse Disney.

In 1999 Dave worked on SGR Colchester, co-hosting a Saturady morning slot with close friend Michael "Snedderz" Sneddon. The show was unsuccessful and axed after 6 weeks.

He also hosted a local weekly segment every day on the Worthing, West Sussex radio station, 107.7 SPLASH FM. He produced a video of Makaton Nursery Rhymes in 2001, being a very rare example of sign language video recordings for children.
