Publisher's Summary

Cliff Morgan talks to sporting personalities of the past. In this recording he is in conversation with the Olympic Pentathlon champion, Mary Peters.

Mary Peters won the gold medal for the Pentathlon at the Munich Olympics in 1972, beating the West German favourite by the narrowest of margins with a performance which also broke the world record. Mary was born in Liverpool in 1939. Her family moved to Northern Ireland when she was eleven and she represented the Province at every Commonwealth Games between 1958 and 1974, winning medals in the shot as well as the Pentathlon. After retiring from competition she remained involved in athletics. She managed the women’s teams at the Moscow and Los Angeles Olympics and has served on the governing bodies of numerous sports associations. She was awarded the DBE in 2000. “Morgan the Magnificent” was the title given to Cliff Morgan by South African newspapers when he toured the country with the British Lions team in 1955.

His success in that tour earned him the captaincy of Wales the following season. Cliff was born into a mining family in the Rhondda in 1930 and joined Cardiff Rugby Club straight from school, playing at fly-half. When his playing career ended in 1958 he joined the BBC, working as a TV commentator and producer. For the last ten years of his BBC career he was Head of Television Sport and Outside Broadcasts, with overall responsibility for the coverage of state occasions, as well as all major sporting events. After he retired from the staff of the BBC he became the presenter of the popular Radio 4 programme "Sport on Four".
