BBC World Service: A summer of sport 1975

I know, every summer is a summer of sport on the BBC, and 2012 even more so with Euro football and London Olympics.  

But let's jump in my time machine and go back to London Calling for July 1975, where Peter Bond and Fred Perry presented the Wimbledon round up programme; The British Open Golf tournament was at Carnoustie, Scotland; celebrity golf was taking off too;  even the Henley Regatta was covered by the BBC World Service and the Australians' cricket tour was in full flow with Lillee and Thomson at full pace.

Plus a fascinating look back at the Alternatives for Africa programmes.
