Stopwatch

POST-BLUE PETER but pre-Crufts, PETER “NATIONAL POWER” PURVES and NIGEL STARMER-SMITH helmed this dreary kids sports magazine, remarkable for its hatred of football and for preferring features on Sonia Lannaman or some obscure Irish table tennis player. RON “AND IT’S THE BIG MAN” PICKERING showed up pretty frequently, sweaty nipples thankfully not present (see WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS).

    I was on an episode of Stopwatch with referee the late Neil Midgley. Presenters were Nigel Starmer-Smith, Peter Purves and the delicious Suan King.

    Did anybody see it?
