Who is presenting the Sport review, Chris Skudder?

I love the end of year reviews. I will be tuning in and I am looking especially forward to the one about the Whale. I remember that weekend well, I was trying to practice for my Advocacy Exam but I was more concerned about the welfare of the Thames Whale

I agree, I do not see why rolling news has got to stop rolling at Christmas. Perhaps the reviews are interesting once but they should be only once and then on the red button

they seem to be starting them a little later this year. In previous years they've started the recorded programming a full week before Christmas.
