Originally transmitted over the three weeks of the 2006 competition itself, Giles inevitably finds himself on a series of baffling adventures and mishaps, involving, amongst other things, the Iranian squad, a stolen World Cup, a very big cake and fifty sticks of Leipzig rock. And to make matters worse, his fiancée Bella is coming out to meet him in Nuremberg to help plan their forthcoming wedding. As is her mother....
In this first part of the three Sony Award-winning World Cup 2006 programmes, Giles encounters the Iranian National Squad, a pig-liver doughnut, two sombreros and a man with a red cross painted on his face.
