Series 3, Episode 2

Garry Richardson and the Look Away Now team imagine what it'd be like for cricket commentators to report from a BBQ; dig into the expenses of sports stars; try to explain the offside rule via a song; and more.

Further details

A bit of an Ashes special - the team have an exclusive interview with Kevin Pietersen and a run down of all the new Aussie players you've never heard of. Look Away Now's own team of cricket commentators couldn't make it to the first Test and instead are covering a barbecue.

And Garry's guests include Fernando the bull and the FA man who determines if the people trying to take over our football clubs are 'fit and proper'.
