The initial production team was Peter Matthew Hutton, Guy Oliver, Jamie Baker, Tony Williamson and Michael Stolz. The show has been produced every week from that date and is seen throughout the world. There have been several other shows that have tried to cover similar ground over the years - including the Octagon show Western Union World Football and the FIFA show FIFA TV.
