Neil regards the newspaper's revelation of details of Israel's nuclear weapons programme in 1986, by using photographs and testimony from former Israeli nuclear technician Mordechai Vanunu, as his greatest scoop as an editor.

Neil was editor of The Sunday Times from 1983 to 1994. It was argued that he was appointed by Rupert Murdoch over more experienced colleagues, such as Hugo Young and Brian Mac Arthur.
