This fascinating three hour programme, presented by Russ Malkin and Suzi Perry, looks at the origins of many of our favourite sports.

Rugby, football, tennis, golf, curling¦where did these sports all originate from? They are now played all over the world by millions of people, and watched by billions. But their historical roots are often entrenched hundreds of years ago.

At one point in British history, archery was used for hunting¦ used for killing. It was then transformed into the sport we know today. When a young boy decided to pick up the ball during a game of soccer, rugby was born, curling resulted from quarrel in Scotland.

This series looks at how 16 sports developed (4 sports per episode), and how the world has now embraced such games as ping pong, now played in China under instruction from Chairman Mao.

We also watch our motor racing, where cars race around the arena on the first racetrack built in Surrey, England

Any sports enthusiast will find something new in the stories told.
