When it comes to greyhound racing there’s no better raconteur than respected journalist Jeff Collerson.
In our special interview Jeff reflects on half a century as chief greyhound writer for the Mirror and the Telegraph. He understood the game, and knew everybody in it.
He explains the origin of his lifelong nickname “Pigeon” and pays tribute to some of the famous journalists he worked with. He talks of a golden run on the punt which took him to Paris and a chance meeting with a girl destined to become his wife.
For the dog fans he reminisces about his all time favourites.
This is a funny interview with a skilled storyteller.
