(Wondering where the World Wildlife Fund comes in, though I know Sagan is often described as an animal.)

In case anyone is missing live sport, the 2018 highlights are on from Saturday 27th at 7pm on ITV4.

Although all the trailers have spoilers as to who wins. Perhaps they should pick a year less fresh in the memory, or make up a 'tour' of choosing exciting stages from various years, where the outcome wouldn't immediately become clear to the casual viewer.

Maybe they felt Eurosport had already done that, plus they might have had to broadcast some cringeworthy-in-hindsight defences of disgraced dopers?
