Derek Thompson has been synonymous with horseracing on television for over three decades. Hugely popular, infectiously enthusiastic and boasting almost as many catchphrases as Sir Bruce Forsyth, Derek is the racing fans' favourite. Desert Orchid, Red Rum and Frankel could all claim to have been the people's horse, but when it comes to racing on TV there is only one people's broadcaster, and in Tommo, Derek's autobiography, his fascinating life story is told. Derek, as comfortable interviewing the Aga Khan as Ronnie Corbett, is the man who beat cancer and High Court humiliation, not to mention the Prince of Wales in a famous Plumpton charity race. He was on the spot, microphone in hand, for some of racing's greatest days, and now in his own words writes about the incredible horses he has watched and the people he has met. Deliciously indiscreet and always entertaining, Derek has countless stories to tell, but the most interesting story of all is his own, and for the first time, good and bad, happy and sad, he is telling it.
