Simon Reeve is a bestselling author and presenter of the acclaimed BBC TV travel series Tropic of Capricorn, Equator, Places That Don't Exist and Meet the Stans, for which he has travelled to scores of countries.

In the 2008 BBC TV series Tropic of Capricorn Simon travelled around the line marking the southern border of the tropics. His accompanying book, also called Tropic of Capricorn, is published by BBC Books.

In the BBC series Equator, Simon headed east around the planet, passing through troubled areas of Africa, Asia and Latin America. In Places That Don't Exist, Simon travelled through a group of unrecognised nations - countries so obscure they don't officially exist. And in Meet the Stans, Simon visited the Central Asian states of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

His books include 'Tropic of Capricorn', 'The New Jackals: Ramzi Yousef, Osama bin Laden and the Future of Terrorism', a New York Times bestseller published in 1998, and 'One Day in September: the story of the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre and Israeli revenge operation 'Wrath of God', which accompanied an Oscar-winning documentary movie of the same name.

Simon has received a One World Broadcasting Trust award for an 'outstanding contribution to greater world understanding'.
