About the Author
Peter Guise was born in 1955 in Canterbury, Kent. Married with a now adult daughter, Peter spent 33 years in public service before turning a hobby into a freelance career in radio sports broadcasting, mostly (but not exclusively) for the BBC. Cricket commentary is his major broadcasting passion although he has been privileged to commentate at both the old and new Wembley for two FA Vase Finals. Often accused of being a dinosaur, Peter has a lifelong interest in railway heritage and closed lines in particular that might have provided a useful (and viable) addition to today’s transport infrastructure had they either remained open or been built in the modern era.
