The One with Alan Baser

Duration: 26 minutes

First broadcast:

Available for over a year

Imagine having the final say on whether someone wins a gold medal -- or goes home with absolutely nothing?

That's the sort of pressure that falls on Alan Baser's shoulders as one of the most respected judges in the world of sailing. It's a vocation that's taken him across the globe, from World Championships to Olympic Games -- and it all began with a bit of messing around on a river in Plymouth.

He's been telling us about the life of a judge; about getting decisions right and not taking the work home with you; about how even he feels 'imposter syndrome'; and how singing in a choir helps him relax!

He's a brilliant guest - and we think you'll like him as much as we do.
