"Radio is almost a reflex thing," he says. "It's fast-moving and about getting the names out and the pitch geography of where the action is. Radio is very much a descriptive art. With television, there is no point in describing things that people can see for themselves. Television is much more an interpretative job and identification of the players is everything."
