Barry Davies: The Man, The Voice, The Legend

Confirmed for BBC One on 4 July at 10.45pm to 11.30pm

Wednesday 4 July



Sue Barker meets legendary commentator Barry Davies to reflect on his outstanding career as the voice of Sport during more than 50 years at the BBC.

As Barry takes the microphone at Wimbledon for the final time, BBC Sport celebrates some of the iconic occasions featuring his unmistakeable voice - including World Cup, FA Cup and Wimbledon finals, Olympic golden moments and The Boat Race, to name but a few.

Colleagues such as fellow commentator John Motson and footballing legends Gary Lineker, Rio Ferdinand and Alan Shearer reveal their memories of Barry.

Other high-profile stars from a variety of sports all have their tales to tell of him, including Sir Matthew Pinsent, Jayne Torvill and Sean Kerly, while we hear about Barry away from the mic, from his devoted wife and children.
