60 years of Sports Report

BBC Radio 5 Live is celebrating 60 years of Sports Report in January by bringing back a host of previous presenters.

Des Lynam returns to the Sports Report studio with Mark Pougatch and Eleanor Oldroyd. Special guests include Ian Payne, John Inverdale, Stuart Hall and Tony Adamson.

There will also be a variety of cameo performances from luminaries who have graced the programme throughout the last 60 years including Jimmy Armfield, who recalls being interviewed as a player on the programme.

Much loved James Alexander Gordon has also been part of the programme, reading out the football results every Saturday for 30 years.

Sports Report is one of the longest-running programmes on British radio, and the special can be heard on 5 Live on Thursday 3 January 2008 at 7.00pm.
