For Radio 2 listeners of a certain vintage, Sunday lunchtimes will always belong to Michael Parkinson. Twinkly anecdotage and a trot through the papers, plus user-friendly jazz and swing: what better soundtrack when you're cooking the Sunday roast?

If you were to watch a programme about Nick Faldo or Bernhard Langer, you would be likely to reflect upon a good three-quarters of an hour spoiled.
