Barry Davies

One BBC commentator, John Motson, has already hanged their mike up this year, and we are about to lose another one with Barry Davies, who is leaving after Wimbledon.

Eighty-year-old Davies has commentated on a wide variety of sporting events, including the Olympics, the Boat Race, and the World Cup, where among other highlights he covered the match containing the “Hand of God” goal, and North Korea’s massive upset against Italy in 1966. This show looks back over his varied career.

Barry Davies: the Man, the Voice, the Legend is on BBC One at 22.45.
