When our athletes are on TV this weekend

Maddie Hinch, Georgie Twigg and Kate Richardson-Walsh

Our Great Britain athletes are in the spotlight this weekend with two major pieces going out on BBC.

Saturday 7:35pm BBC One: The National Lottery
Sunday 1:30pm BBC Two: Clare Balding Meets


On Saturday evening, we'll be featured on The National Lottery: Five Star Family Reunion show, which begins at 7:35pm. The National Lottery and UK Sport play a huge role in our athletes' quest for success in Rio, and the BBC spoke to a number of athletes from both the men's and women's teams to find out all about their preparations for Brazil. They also went behind the scenes at our world class facilities at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre and the feature will give a real insight into the life and personalities of our top hockey players.

Find out more about the show here, where you can also schedule your set-top box to record the show if you know you'll be out and about!

On Sunday we have an entire episode of 'Clare Balding Meets...' dedicated to us at 1:30pm on BBC Two. Clare visited Bisham recently to speak to Maddie Hinch, Kate Richardson-Walsh and Georgie Twigg as they talk about their love of hockey, their journeys and hopes for the summer in Rio.

It's a great in-depth insight with one of the BBC's most prominent presenters, and adds to the excitement with just a few days to go now until Rio.

Clare tweeted about the interview when she came to Bisham, and it's sure to be a great watch. You can schedule your set-top box here, and it will also be available on iPlayer after the event.










Indeed, Clare has always been a big supporter of our sport.




Also this weekend sees the launch of a new interview between Charlotte Edwards and Kate Richardson-Walsh on Virgin outlets and the Virgin Money Giving YouTube channels.
