Presented by Anna Ford with Kim Howells
Tonight's Network looks at sports coverage on television. Are the viewers being provided with the kind of coverage they want, or are sports programmes often boring, superficial and uninformative? How do

In his film, Simon Inglis maintains that there is much room for improvement, especially in the televising of football. In the studio, a group of viewers and other interested parties discuss the issue with the BBC and ITV heads of sport. Studio director LINDA NASH
