Sports Mash combines classic clips of the best and most unusual footage in the ITV World of Sport archive with modern, light-hearted commentary. Footage from the cream of British sport in the 1970s and 80s is featured along with some sports that no longer get the share of the television limelight that they used to, including polo and arm wrestling.

Dave Lamb, the voice of Come Dine With Me, provides the commentary along with comedian and impressionist Alastair McGowan and actress Lucy Montgomery.
