Touchline Tales, Series 2 Episode 2 of 3

Old friends Des Lynam and Christopher Matthew head for some famous sporting venues - to enjoy, observe, reminisce and trade tales about some of the greatest pleasures in their lives. Today, they wander between the equine competitors at the Open Show of the West Sussex Riding Club, begin to consider which sports they would like to see at the Olympics, and try not to put their feet into ordure - both literally and figuratively.

As a commentator and friend of sporting stars, Des has, as ever, a fund of stories to tell, and insights to reveal. But Christopher gamely tries to match him stride by stride with his own experiences as a lifelong spectator at the highest levels of sport (and, like Des, an occasional participant at the lowest).
