When I heard that Jack Whitehall was going to be hosting a lockdown series for the BBC that would focus on British sport, I was throughly uninterested, as I thought it was an odd pairing of topic and host, and that it would also just be a glorified highlights package.

However, I decided to give it a go and was instantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Whether it was the corona virus enforced lack of live sport I’d experienced this summer or not, I found this cleverly structured and well executed look at the many ups and downs of British sport to be quite gripping and very comforting.

Whitehall does add some comedy in but is mostly restrained here and delivers some genuinely good voiceover work to add to the feel of the show.

It’s by no means a modern classic, but in these uncertain times, it felt like a warm sporting blanket to wrap ourselves up in.

Rating = 4/5
