Before Shipwrecked and Popworld, way back before Football Italia, Channel 4’s Sunday morning ‘hangover slot’ was graced by Kabaddi. A frenetic game popular in South Asia, the aim is to raid opposition territory while holding your breath; to untutored eyes, it looks a bit like British Bulldog. The show is still fondly remembered by many, but I bet you didn’t know it was made in Bearwood. Today Sunandan and Yugesh Walia (Endboard Productions) will be reliving Kabaddi‘s golden years.

NB: Not only did Krishnan Guru-Murthy not suffer a collapsed lung while presenting Kabaddi, but he also had nothing to do with the show. These are myths propagated by Wikipedia.
