About Lance Hardy

Lance Hardy | 16:59 UK time, Sunday, 6 May 2007

I am the series editor of Final Score on BBC ONE and Score on BBCi, as well as being the women's football editor.

I studied journalism at Richmond College in Sheffield and began my career as a newspaper journalist. I joined the BBC in 1990 as a sub-editor with Ceefax Sport. Three years later I moved over to BBC TV Sport on attachment as a trainee assistant producer. I became a producer here in 1998, an assistant editor in 2001 and an editor in 2004.

I have had a varied and enjoyable career at the BBC. I have worked at three World Cups, two European Championships and two Olympic Games (Atlanta and Sydney). I have also produced and directed documentaries, worked on nine Wimbledon tennis championships (both as a journalist and a producer; I also directed the titles sequence in 1999), six world darts championships (including one as editor in 2001) and was director/producer on the World's Strongest Man in Las Vegas in 1997.

But football has always been my main love. I worked on Football Focus and Match Of The Day as a producer from 1994 and first began editing programmes in 1999. I was Assistant Editor of Football Focus from 2001-2004 and since 2001 I have also been responsible for our women's football TV coverage, including Women's Euro 2005 in England and Women's World Cup 2007 in China.
