You don't often hear it straight from the horse's mouth. Normally Clare Balding is in the way, getting it straight from a jockey's mouth even if there's barely a tooth on show. But she's busy with our other four-footed friends on More 4's Crufts coverage. On Race Horses (BBC4, Thursday) and Barbados at the Races (BBC4, Tuesday), both produced by Cutting Edge, it was a case of four legs better than two.

Jenson Button followed in Lewis Hamilton's footsteps to win the Formula One world championship but will be hoping to avoid matching his fellow Briton's fate when it comes to the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year.

Something unusual happened yesterday; a commentator said something that I not only agreed with but which also led me to think deeply about the game. Now be sure, it is a rugby player's job to despise the professional rugby broadcaster, primarily because, like the relationship with an ex-girlfriend, we only ever remember the nasty things they say about us.

I listen to them with a mixture of admiration for their sporting knowledge and sheer awe at their ability to fill dead time with articulate, precise opinions while operating all sorts of new-fangled visual equipment and with livid directors barking into their ears. Not an easy art, I hasten to remind the armchair aficionado.
