- "... to the choleric, red-haired controller of BBC1 Bryan “Ginger” Cowgill..."  https://www.newstatesman.com/…/twice-bottled-grief-defiant-…

- "He was referred to by colleagues as ‘The Clitheroe Kid’ or sometimes ‘Ginger’ because of his hair colour."  https://www.transdiffusion.org/2009/04/25/bryancowgill
- "It was inthis role that he earned the nickname Ginger, partly because of his red hair, but more because of his reputation as a loud, fiery taskmaster..."  https://books.google.it/books…
