Sir Steve Redgrave and Handball
The EHA, the governing body of handball in England, has today reported that Sir Steve Redgrave has spoken in the Radio Times about how impressed he is with handball. In the report he mentions that he went to see handball during the Athens Olympics and was really impressed. What he appears to have forgotten is a little remembered regional sports programme made during the mid-1980s in which two towns played each other at a variety of sports. Now it may have been that the show never made it past the pilot. It certainly didn't survive for a second series if it was commissioned and would not have been shown nationally. Anyway, handball was one of the sports and Sir Steve was the celebrity sportsperson for one of the towns, it may have been Reading. Does anyone remember the name of the programme?
