ED­DIE IZ­ZARD’S MARATHONS FOR MAN­DELA

Satur­day, 8.35pm, SBS ONE

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS -

The comic ac­tor con­tin­ues his at­tempt to run 27 marathons in con­sec­u­tive days across South Africa to com­mem­o­rate Nel­son Man­dela’s in­car­cer­a­tion.

It’s an am­bi­tious at­tempt for even elite ath­letes and to say Iz­zard is find­ing it tough go­ing is an un­der­state­ment.

Af­ter putting his near col­lapse in the last episode be­hind him, he re­joices in the op­por­tu­nity to run on smooth tar­mac in­stead of rocky ter­rain. But the joy is short lived.
