So far the annual BBC Sport Relief charity appeal has raised nearly £32 million and donations are still coming in. No-one with any interest in the game of golf should miss the contribution from the team behind the television drama ‘Ashes to Ashes’. This episode could be sub-titled “How ‘Tiger’ Woods got his name”.

Set in 1983, it features the cast of Ashes to Ashes joined on location at Moor Park Golf Club near London by Frank Bruno, Dickie Davies, Michael Parkinson, Steve Cram, Sam Torrance, Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee, David Gower, Daley Thompson, Duncan Goodhew, Denis Taylor, Willie Thorne, Tony Hadley, Christopher Biggins, Bobby George and probably a few more stars of sport and screen beside AND….’Tiger’ Woods, aged 7 years. Not to be missed – and it’s all in a good cause…………….

Also strongly recommended is the highly talented actor/comedian/script-writer James Corden in “Smithy at Sports Personality of the Year”. Supported by a cast of sporting legends and a production team of outstanding skill, Corden has created one of the most outstanding pieces of sports-related broadcasting that you will probably ever see. It’s funny, a little cruel in places, original and truly inspirational. Hurry now to
