Dave Kidney: Superstar

Dave Kidney is a 78-year-old wrestling champion from Dundee. An amazingly fit pensioner, Kidney still competes, and is gearing up for a spectacular show to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his 1959 British featherweight title.

But it will not be easy; as well as the fight itself, this aged wrestler faces another major test of his mettle - Finding an audience with an appetite for old-school British wrestling in a modern world of Xbox and The X Factor.

Can he survive and triumph, or is it time this old man acted his age?
