Sports Detectives (Smithsonian) – Starts 24th April
In a sports equivalent of Lost And Found, a private detective and a journalist team up to track down the location of a piece of sporting memorabilia where its whereabouts is uncertain.
Starting off where the sporting event happened, the investigator and journalist meet up with people who were in contact with the object at the item and then follow its story through to where they finally discovery its location and talk to the owner about how and when it was acquired along with explaining some of the false stories surrounding it.
With the first episode mystery behind the item they were after was pretty solved after talking to the first person they met leading to about 40 minutes worth of padding before finally “discovering” it.
Barring the backstory and legend of the item they’re looking for, it’s a bit of a slog to get though.
