First TV credit airs on BBC One in landmark career moment

21 June 2019

Dreams came true tonight as I finally received my first credit on BBC One as a Production Runner on A Question of Sport.

The first episode of the iconic show's 49th series was filmed earlier this month at MediaCityUK. Golfer Matt Wallace, sprinter Imani-Lara Lansiquot, gymnast Ellie Downie and cricketer Sam Billings featured as guests.

They joined regular captains Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell, who have been with the show since 2004 and 2008 respectively. The latter came out on top winning 21-19 to clinch victory.


The show, hosted by former tennis player Sue Barker, has been running since 1970 and reached its 1000th episode in March 2013.
