About the Author:

Neil Duncanson was a trainee news journalist in East London before working for a number of national newspapers. A freelance writer for both the written and visual press, he moved into television as an assistant producer at Thames Sport, where he devised and researched the 1980s book and TV series The Fastest Men on Earth. His other book credits include The Olympics, a book on sporting technology, as well as collaborations with Patrick Collins (on Tales of Gold, celebrating every British Olympic gold medalist) and Norman Giller (on Crown of Thorns, a history of boxing's world heavyweight championship). He joined Chrysalis as a freelance producer in 1990 to head their sports division. The division grew dramatically and Chrysalis Television, now North One Television, was set up in 1997, with him as CEO, a position he continues to hold.
