From our partners:
- A Blind Eye: “Real Sports” examines why nearly all of the world’s sports federations, including FIFA, have chosen to make Switzerland their home, and looks into allegations that the Swiss government’s hands-off approach has led to rampant corruption and bribery scandals. Correspondent David Scott reports. Producer: Josh Fine.
- Wheelz: “Real Sports” profiles the godfather of extreme wheelchair sports, Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham, who finds freedom jumping, flipping, and crashing in competition. Born with spina bifida and given up for adoption as an infant, Wheelz has used his challenges as fuel to reach new heights while inspiring others along the way. Correspondent Mary Carillo reports. Producer: Beret Remak.
- North Shore Lifeguards: The North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii is considered the greatest surfing coast on Earth. It’s also one of the most dangerous, where the difference between life and death often comes down to the lifeguards who regularly dive into massive waves to rescue bloodied and injured surfers. Correspondent Jon Frankel reports. Producer: Jordan Kronick.
- Work to Ride (Update): Twenty years ago, “Real Sports” first featured Work to Ride – an extraordinary program that teaches the upper-crust sport of polo to at-risk inner-city youth in Philadelphia. This past fall, Work to Ride held its inaugural Philadelphia Polo Classic that drew in thousands of spectators around the city to support the program. The program has now graduated over one hundred kids and equipped them with skills to live better lives. Correspondent Mary Carillo reports. Producer: Hannah Vicente-Kliot.
The executive producer of REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL is Joe Perskie.
