At worst, a sports injury can cruelly cut short a brilliant career, jeopardise your team's hopes and even result in permanent disability. At very least, it can ruin your weekend sport and lay you off work. But where do you get help and advice for your twisted knee or nagging jogging pain? Is the out-patients' department sufficient or should there be more sports clinics? Are broken bones and soft tissue injuries to be expected, or is preparation the vital factor? And are our top athletes trying to beat an evolution barrier - and losing?
David Icke introduces the opinions and sometimes painful experiences of sportsmen and women, and we hear from the doctors. surgeons and physiotherapists involved with sports injury.
With David is Mike Rawson , former European Games gold medallist, now athletics coach and fitness consultant. Producer GWYN RICHARDS BBC Birmingham
