What to expect

A hilarious collection of BBC broadcasting blunders presented by John Inverdale. There are no gaffes like sporting gaffes. In the excitement of the moment, and live on air, commentators and sports personalities can say the most amazing and the silliest things. This compilation includes slips-of-the-tongue and scrambling of words which produce gales of laughter from the commentary box – and those listening in. There’s the hysteria of an overexcited Colombian football commentator, as well as Brian Johnston’s unforgettable ‘leg-over’ gaffe, not to mention a whole host of laugh-out-loud moments involving tennis, racing, boxing and almost every other major sport under the sun. All the classic moments are here, together with some surprises, in this quick-fire collection which is a must for every sports fan.
