Award-winning comedian and author ALEX HORNE goes on a journey through the world of forgotten and extinct sports - from Quintain to Cricket on Horseback - for a brand new BBC FOUR documentary, The Games That Time Forgot.
This film follows Alex's attempts to uncover, recreate and revive some of the games that had been buried under the weight of modern sports. Why was horseless jousting once so popular? How do you win a smoking match? And is it really possible to play a whole game of cricket on horseback? Watch The Games That Time Forgot to find out.
