My glass is always half full

I'm Richard Creasey. This space is where the glass is half full. Along with Douglas Adams and Robbie Stamp, I'm a founder of BBCi's h2g2 community site.

My background is television, indeed for 14 years I ran the Network Factual department at Central Independent Televison in the UK - responsible for all aspects of the company's features and documentary output.

One project which tested me to the full was the Overland Challenge a journey that changed my life. You'll be able to learn more about me from that.

At the top of my present agenda is 'The Sigusa Trilogy'. The next net challenge that I am helping on h2g2 is 'Connect Africa'. I've just finished helping John Ridgway's 'Save The Albatross' project. Earlier I completed my first ever radio series Crossing the Boundary.

For those of you who feel my name has a ring to it that you half recognise, that will probably be because my father John Creasey was the world's most prolific writer.

Dad introduced me to that wide world of adventure and travel, indeed I was driven round the world for 465 days in the back of my parents car when I was 5 and 6, and among other interests, I now have my own small aeroplane.
