Where do famous people, who maybe don’t work much anymore, get income?
We now know that Patrick Moore was generous to a fault, spending all his income on parties and putting people through university, etc. But think of someone who was on TV in the 80s or early 90s and just ask where the money for them to pay bills, buy food, council tax, etc is coming from.
Royalties? Residual payments?
Money from shares or rental from property wisely purchased when the ‘going was good’?
