Andre and Steffi's Six appeal
This week is show six - and, dare I say it, it is one that has real six appeal. Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, arguably the biggest sporting couple on the planet will be on the show. Wow! I don't like using the word exclusive - but as exclusives go, it's as near to one as you're ever going to get.
Gabby has done the interview in Vegas - she filmed it with producer Jason on Wednesday, and having spoken to her, she says they were fantastic. As soon as the tapes have safely arrived back here in London, the team will be busy editing the 30 minute special - it's a case of all hands to the pump, as editing a 30-minute show in a 'documentary style' is not easy.
In fact, some documentaries you see from Sport to Current Affairs can take weeks and months to edit. For this, we have only days but I want this to go out as soon as possible - before the world sees the dynamic duo play again under the new roof at Wimbledon on 17 May (which you can see on BBC TV on the Red Button and BBC2).
It is a real coup - not just for us but for Wimbledon as well. Steffi and Andre transcend tennis - they are out there on their own, like Woods, Federer, Ronaldo...they are indeed big hitters.
So, what did they talk about? Well, you'll just have to wait and see. Yes, we saw Steffi in all her pomp in her playing days power her way to 22 Grand Slam singles titles and yes, many of us wanted to be Agassi, who we witnessed through various metamorphoses in a career that saw him win eight Slams, but as a married couple, we've not seen them together, until now.
All I can say is tune in on Monday night at 2310 BST on BBC One to see them as you've never seen them before. It isn't the greatest slot in the but to be on the main network in the country is something we are very happy about.
"Happy", though, isn't a word to describe some of your comments about our guest set-up on Inside Sport. I respect your opinions but as the editor I also have an opinion and I think the guests we have had on so far have worked well, offered new elements to the show and given it energy, and that isn't being disrespectful to who we've had on before.
I deliberately wanted to look at this part of the show and I'm happy with how its working. Here's why...Geoff Boycott and David Brailsford were fantastic value last week and Boycott alone generated more than 70,000 hits on the website following his comments on the England cricket team ahead of the Ashes.
His quotes also made all the newspapers the next day...but 70,000 hits... Austin Healey was in the studio on 20 Apri and talked about who might be in, or out, of the British and Irish Lions squad to be selected the next day - he was spot on with his inside line on that. We also had AP McCoy talking about his future just two days after his 14th successive championship title.
So, while we have generated news lines, I've also used those guests to get an insight into their sport from the sofa as well as in the usual big interviews and features we do. So, you have your opinion and I have mine. As a programme maker you want to engage as much as possible. My idea for this show is to make entertaining television with strong journalism and questioning in the studio being a huge part of that...but in television you also have to entertain and later at night you have to keep things moving even more and sometimes have an element of surprise.
The element of surprise this week? Wait and see....
