The Best Of Sporting Witness

Fred Dove presents the highlights from Sporting Witness, the series which reveals the inside story of key moments in sporting history.

It's packed with stories of endurance, personal triumph and injustices, and we hear from Martina Navratilova about the personal cost of her defection, learn how Dick Fosbury came up with his revolutionary way of high-jumping and discover why the French team turned up at the 1948 Olympics in London with a train full of wine.
