Trevor's World Of Sport Series 1
Publisher: BBC Worldwide Ltd
Date: August 2007
Duration: 2 hours 46 minutes
The first series of Andy Hamilton's BBC Radio 4 comedy about sports PR agent Trevor, starring Neil Pearson and Paul Reynolds.Trevor and Sammy are the movers and shakers at TS Sports Stars agency. Friends for twenty years, and business partners for nine, they are chalk and cheese: Trevor is thoughtful, honest and sensitive while Sammy is a rapacious dealmaker with the morals of a hyena. In these six episodes, we follow Trevor and his partner as they deal, in their very different ways, with colleagues and clients. While Sammy spends most of his time lusting after their highly intelligent lesbian receptionist Heidrun, Trevor finds himself grappling with egotists, opportunists, raging alcoholics and religious extremists - not to mention naïve footballer Jason; a Buddhist; a polar explorer; someone called Biggsy; an impossibly difficult tennis star and of course Ralph, the ultimate client from hell. Then there's his estranged wife Meryl, and his son, Toby - who is a teenager, with all the horror that entails. For Trevor, life is a shark tank, and it's a constant struggle to stay afloat... Following on from the acclaimed TV series, this Radio 4 show, written by Andy Hamilton (whose radio credits include the Sony Award-winning 'Old Harry's Game'), and with appearances by Kevin R. McNally and Doon Mackichan, is an enjoyable, fast-moving series about the high-profile, money-spinning industry of sporting celebrity.
