Cricketing legend Fred Trueman presents Indoor League – an antidote to the multi-million pound media sensation that modern-day sports have become. Join Freddie as he enjoys his pipe and a pint of bitter whilst hosting the high-octane gladiatorial combat that is pub games - darts, bar billiards, skittles, arm wrestling and shove ha'penny are all covered here. This fondly remembered series lasted for seventy-two shows over four years, and here's your chance to find out why!
A peak-time ratings success when initially transmitted in the Yorkshire ITV area, this second DVD volume comprises all thirteen editions from the second series. Featuring an early television appearance by snooker ace John Virgo, is destined to become cult viewing for armchair sports fans and students alike - or, indeed, anyone who gets a kick out of watching pub sports. After all, darts began its television life on Indoor League… so it has a lot to answer for!

Indoor League started in 1973? I don't think the first was long before, but World of Sport carried some of the 1972 News of the World Darts Championship in April of that year. IL might have had the first regular darts coverage on TV, but it certainly wasn't the first sports programme to carry it.

It is a great nostalgic reminder of 70's lunchtimes.!

Ha ha, I posted a comment on the network site against volume one wishing for volume two and it turns up within a month. What shall I ask for next?!! Brilliant news , remember its a Yorkshire dartboard, NO TREBLES!!
Game was 301 rather than 501. Don't think the Yorkshire board lasted a long time on the series though.JWG wrote:I was told about that "no trebles" aspect yesterday.It can make for fairly long games,then?
