20060522John Wilson goes behind the sports stories to find the cultural, human and poltical issues they highlight.

In this programme he discusses the modern imperialism of rich sporting nations, tempting the talent away from third world countries then, in the case of football, expecting the countires to pay for privilege.

He'll explore misanthropy, drug taking and racism in America as the USA struggles to accept its latest basball hero, and why the likes of Barnsley and Cheltenham offer a more exciting climax to the English football season than Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea or Manchester United.
