Jack Whitehall takes a lighthearted and nostalgia-filled look back at Britain's sporting history, telling the nation's story through our most iconic moments and characters.

2020 has been a strange year for sport with every professional league suspended and an entire summer of iconic events wiped out. The whole nation is itching for some sporting action - step forward Jack Whitehall, with the entirety of sports history at his fingertips.

Jack Whitehall's Sporting Nation is BBC One's comedy retrospective, in which Jack Whitehall, the ultimate armchair fan, tells the story of the United Kingdom through its greatest sporting moments. Looking back on decades of glorious action, in this nostalgia-filled and light-hearted take on our heritage, Jack invites us to relive our most incredible sporting achievements together while exploring what our love of sport says about us as a nation.

In collaboration with some of the UK's most exciting sports writers, Jack takes us on a journey through six themes that unite us; from loving the underdog to hating the Australians. The show will bring together rich cultural nostalgia, social commentary and top-class athleticism to create a feel-good dive into our sporting past that will remind us just how much we love it, and how we can't wait for it to return.
