From the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London,
Desmond Lynam and Steve Rider celebrate 1992's great sporting moments, and announce the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
It was the year of the 25th
Olympiad, and in the summer heat of Barcelona Linford Christie became the oldest man to win the 100m gold and in the 400m hurdles Sally Gunnell captured Britain's first female athletics gold medal for 20 years. In the rowing,
Steven Redgrave and Matthew Pinsent powered to victory in the coxless pairs and, with their emotional cox Garry Herbert , brothers Jonny and Greg Searle took the coxed pairs gold. And an unexpected cycling gold was won by Chris Boardman on his revolutionary "superbike".
Elsewhere, Nigel Mansell finally won the World Drivers' Championship, with a record-breaking nine Grand Prix wins, and the ever-consistent golfer Nick Faldo took his second
Open title. England's cricket team lost the World Cup final to Pakistan but gained one-day revenge in the summer;
Will Carling 's England rugby union side secured their second successive Grand Slam; boxers Lennox Lewis and Frank Bruno both boosted their world heavyweight title prospects; evergreen jockey
Lester Piggott , now 57, took a tumble in America but vowed to return to the saddle, and at Wimbledon, Andre Agassi upstaged them all.
There will also be awards for
Team of the Year and Overseas
Personality of the Year. Producer Martin Hopkins Editor Brian Barwick

Explorations of the faith and beliefs of people in ordinary and extraordinary circumstances. A Job for Life. An intimate portrait of some of the 900 miners and their families of the South Yorkshire village of Grimethorpe. On 13 October this year - "Black Tuesday" - it was announced that the colliery would have 90 days in which its fate would be decided. Three weeks later coal production stopped. Shot above and below ground during the run-up to probable closure, this film shows that, for many, loss of work will mean a loss of self-esteem in a community that's losing its reason for existence. Producer Richard Alwyn Series editor John Blake
