    Behind The Lines: The genius of Hugh McIlvanney

    Behind The Lines: The genius of Hugh McIlvanney

    This week’s Behind The Lines is a special episode as part of The42’s Genius Week, in which we celebrate the genius of the late Hugh McIlvanney. We’re delighted to be joined by Gary Lineker to do so, who became a friend of McIlvanney’s, and delivered a eulogy at his funeral.

    Gary also shares his memories of McIlvanney, and his opinions on what made him the best sportswriter of them all.

    (We also learn a bit about Lineker’s fledgling sportswriting career before he got on with the business of being one of the greatest goalscorers in English football history.)

    McIlvanney is the most-cited writer across our 29 episodes to date, and this episode also features contributions from Donald McRae, Alan English, Miguel Delaney and Danny Kelly.

    Behind the Lines is available exclusively to members of the42. To sign up and gain access to a host of podcast series, special offers and exclusive newsletters, insights and stories, head over to members.the42.ie.

    Sonia - Episode 3 - Talk To Joe

    Sonia - Episode 3 - Talk To Joe

    In the final episode of 'Sonia' we find her at her lowest hour, Atlanta 1996. It's her second Olympics and again, Ireland expects and demands.

    We then go back a year to see just why the Irish public were just so expectant as Sonia becomes World Champion in Gothenburg.

    Sonia finally climbed on to the Olympic podium in Sydney eight years on from coming so close in Barcelona - it had been a long, but ultimately glory-filled, road along the way.
