Sports Commentary

The first year of FilmG’s Sports Commentary award was a lot of work but a great success nonetheless!  

Watch this space for news of the award in our 10th year, in the meantime, why not swot up on Hugh Dan's Top Tips?

  • Remember, if you don’t get it right the first time, you can always stop recording and start again. Listen back to your entry to make sure that you’re happy with it before submitting  
  • It is recommended that you have preparation notes with research and facts and statistics that will add colour and interest to your commentary. You may submit these along with your recording if you like.
  • Practice makes perfect! BBC ALBA has sport coverage on a regular basis – turn it on, turn the sound down and practice until you are good enough to put Hugh Dan Maclennan out of a job!
