Champions League Festival

Today i worked as a commentator and stadium announcer at the Champions League Festival in Hyde Park. I say worked, it was for the Bobby Moore Fund, a charity dear to my heart. Here’s me with BMF founder Stephanie Moore, Bobby’s widow and a truly splendid woman. I commentated on a match between the Parliamentary Football Club and TalkSport. The MPs won it 11-7. They were surprisingly good, especially as

End of Season Gala Dinner

I thought presenting at the end of season gala dinner, the day after we were relegated would be a tough gig. Actually it was a great night out and I met lots of lovely people. I’ve been feeling so down since West Ham lost at Wigan, that the last thing I wanted was a night out to be honest. But I’d promised I’d do the auctioneering in aid of the

The one eyed darts player

Here’s a feature I did with darts player Jamie ‘Jabba’ Caven. As a child he was stung by a bee and lost the sight in one eye. He still went onto become world youth darts champion. As an adult he’s overcome pancreatic cancer which has left him diabetic. Amazingly he’s risen against all those odds to become number eighteen in the world rankings. I went to his Derby home to

Silent Movie

Here’s the latest in my And Finally TV reports. I met a group who compose and perform music for classic silent movies. They’re called the Southwell Collective and the movie featured is the 1928 French gothic horror, The Fall of the House of Usher, based on the novel by Edgar Allen Poe. In the story a man is painting his wife. As the picture becomes more and more lifelike, so
