Q.

A former stuntman, who was also a swimming champion and a serially unsuccessful inventor, was appalled by a BBC documentary about the spread of AIDS through Africa. This motivated him to develop and patent, with much difficulty, one of the best communication devices meant for the poor living in places without electricity. Who was the person and what did he invent?
