The Man Behind the Mike

Details

The Man Behind the Mike, Mike Tucker, The voice of Equestrianism. The Official of biography of the BBC's lead equestrian commentator for 25 years. Mike Tucker was born into a life of farming and horses. His passion and hard work enabled him to progress from international groom to successful international event rider, top-level eventing official and television commentator. The pinnacle of Mike's career as commentator was covering Nick Selkton's gold medal at the Rio Olympics in 2016 for the BBC. In 'The Man Behind the Mike' we learn about Mike's family history and the connection with the Badminton Estate where his grandfather farmed; The Beaufort Pony Club, a huge influence in his life with many top level riders being Members; a visit to Australia, staying with the Roycroft family, which proved to be a pivotal moment in his efforts to become a successful event rider; and about Mike's second place at Badminton which laid the foundations of his credibility as a rider and commentator. The 'voice behind the microphone' had the experience and knowledge to commentate with authority and to command respect from the listening public at horse trials, dressage, showjumping, and cross-country shows throughout the UK and beyond.
