I'm Vernon Grant, since 1980 a producer of sport, news and entertainment programmes for C4, ITV, BBC and SKY SPORTS – where I produced the Sky Sports Book Show.

Like me, you too could beat the bookie year in, year out.
Here I talk to champion jump jockey AP McCoy. The man who won the Grand National in 2010. The man who was voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year the same year. And the man who has ridden a record number of winners during a glorious career. He talks candidly about his triumphs and traumas. About how he reacts when a horse has to be put down. About the controversial whip ban. About winning the Grand National on Don't Push It. On how he knew, seconds before everyone else, that he had won the BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2010. Tony McCoy reflects on his career and talks more about some of the stories in his autobiography.
