Early years

After his Irish father emigrated from Killorglin in County Kerry to practise medicine, Prendiville was born in Rochdale, Lancashire. He later attended Clongowes Wood College in County Kildare, Ireland, the same Jesuit boarding school as his father.

Presenting

Working alongside Glyn Worsnip, Prendiville was a presenter of the BBC consumer programme That's Life! from 1973 to 1978. Also featuring on Tomorrow's World, the network's science programme, he once famously claimed that the CD was indestructible; he demonstrated this by spreading strawberry jam on a copy of the Bee Gees' Living Eyes. He was the BBC's on-site commentator of the first space shuttle mission, reporting from Cape Canaveral and Edwards Air Force Base.

Writing

The creator of the BBC's popular drama Ballykissangel, Prendiville's other writing credits include The Bill, Boon (Central/ITV) and Roughnecks (BBC). He received praise and criticism for Care (2000), his controversial drama about child abuse in a Welsh children's home.
