The Boat Race

1:00pm Saturday 7 April on BBC ONE

Clare Balding presents live coverage of the annual rowing battle along London’s river Thames between the competing eights of Oxford and Cambridge universities.

The first race took place in 1829 – and has been held every year since 1856. Oxford took last year’s honours and boast a superior recent record, winning eight races to Cambridge’s four since the millennium.

Commentary from Jonathan Ledgard, Dan Topolski and Wayne Pommen. Reporting from Sonali Shah and British Olympic legend Matthew Pinsent.
