BBC SPORT

BBC Sport is once again honoured to be charged with broadcasting the 164th Boat Race - one of the most historic and iconic sporting events in the world calendar - and continuing a tradition and relationship that dates back almost as far as the race itself.

 

During the course of over 2 hours on BBC1, Clare Balding will present the build-up to the race with an array of guests and an eclectic mix of imaginatively crafted, creative and entertaining features to provide an insightful look into the mindset and personality of the crews; the obstacles they have faced over the past 12 months; and the challenges they have yet to overcome over the gruelling 4 1/4 mile stretch of water from Putney to Mortlake.
