Ian PeacockIan Peacock presents critically acclaimed, quirky documentaries on BBC Radio 4. A Gold Sony Award winner, he has reported for Front Row, Home Truths, PM, Word of Mouth and many other programmes across the BBC networks.

'A natural broadcaster,' writes Sue Arnold in The Observer. 'Foot-in-the-door reporting all the way. Peacock seems genuinely interested.'

Writing credits include The Times and numerous magazines. For Men's Health, Ian once wrote a diary about his attempts to achieve a six pack.

'Peacock can rustle up a clever reportage-essay on any subject,' writes Valerie Grove in The Oldie.

Ian's features have covered subjects as diverse as neon signs, time capsules, bad bell ringers, revenge, pineapples in British culture, nothingness, alleged recordings of ghosts, talking starlings and … Schrödinger's cat.

As an interviewer, Ian has worked with Bob Hope, Barbara Cartland, Oliver Reed, Stephen Hawking, Tony Blair, Prunella Scales, Mark Wahlberg, Seamus Heaney and Take That (to name but a few). He has broadcast from many odd locations, from a Swiss whistling conference to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop to the Popemobile.

His personal blog www.peacockshock.com is read throughout the world. 

Ian lives in Hertfordshire with his cat Bollinger.
