Steve Rider reminisces with Greg

Steve Rider is a bona fide legend of British sports broadcasting. Talking Away in the latest podcast episode, the BBC Grandstand turned ITV Sport anchorman has been there and done it in just about every sport imaginable.

There’s plenty of nostalgia as Steve recalls the highest high of Lewis Hamilton winning the 2008 F1 world title on the last corner of the last lap of the last race and the lowest low of 3-time World Champion Ayrton Senna losing his life live in-vision at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.

On top of that, there is discussion on Steve’s invaluable contribution to the development of TV coverage for the British Touring Car Championship, including memories of the late Murray Walker and a clip from the great man’s first-ever BBC broadcast in 1949.
