An Audience with Peter Alliss

Product Description

Peter made his broadcasting debut way back in 1961, as part of the BBC team covering the Open Championship at Birkdale which was won by Arnold Palmer. His retirement from international golf at the – relatively early – age of 38 led to a full-time career “on the other side of the ropes.” By 1978 he was the BBC’s chief golf commentator following the death of his co-host and great friend Henry Longhurst. Peter once claimed he’s a golf commentator only because he’s “there as an old player, a lover of the game and a good weaver of stories”. Modesty would prevent him saying that Golf Digest described him as “the greatest golf commentator ever” – but to many that’s what he is. But it’s not only as a commentator that Peter is revered: he became a part of tv history, fronting 140 episodes of the popular BBC series Pro-Celebrity Golf, between 1974 and 1988, and progressed to an informal chat show on the fairways, Around with Alliss. His most recent television series, A Golfer’s Travels, is still being shown across the world – and is available on DVD… Tickets: All £20
