A bunch of non-sporty celebs take part in various sporting events such as swimming, rowing, running, target golf, five-a-side football, a tug of war and the obstacle course at that mecca of sporting excellence, Harrow Leisure Centre (who needs the Olympics?). From the sound of it, probably a cash-in on Beeb's more popular Superstars, and something of a forerunner to The Games. Or Blue Peter Champions.

Celebs involved included Patrick Mower, Bonnie Langford, Tony Blackburn, Robin Askwith, Brough Scott, William Woollard, Tommy Boyd, Bill Oddie, Liza Goddard and, choke, ITN newspuppet Sandy Gall. They were all in teams such as TV Situation Comedy, The Theatre, TV Cops, and Presenters.
