To create the marathon text of TWENTY FOUR HOURS OF PEACE , Neil spent nearly six months travelling across the UK, meeting one hundred remarkable individuals. He talked to MPs and diplomats; to artists and activists ; to rabbis, ministers and imams; to women’s refuge workers and to schoolteachers; to veterans ; to people who work in uniform as well as people who work behind desks . The youngest of his interviewees had just turned 18 – and the oldest was about to turn 100 . He asked them about their lives – about their work – and about what inspires them to keep on working for peace.
