Touchline Tales, Series 2 Episode 3 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 bring the current series to a close with a tranquil visit to the Oval for the third day of of a mid-week game of county cricket.

As a commentator and friend of sporting stars, Des is never short of a story to tell, or an insight to reveal, about the men and women in professional sport - their lives, their characters, their training regimes, their triumphs and their disasters. And Christopher continues to play a straight bat with his own experiences as a lifelong spectator at the highest levels of sport (and an occasional participant at the lowest).
