To answer the previous person, Trevor's World of Sport was cancelled after just one run.
It suffered very badly indeed from its scheduling. That's an easy thing to say but in this case the show was preceded by Eyes Down, an especially poor Paul O'Grady bingo comedy. After a couple of episodes, Trevor's World was pulled and then a fortnight or so later it resurfaced in a late night Monday slot where ratings would never trouble it.
As a result, creator Andy Hamilton said at the time that he would never work for BBC1 again but there has been a change at the top since so hopefully he will reconsider.
And one good piece of news is that Trevor's World of Sport got a further lease of life with a new run of episodes that aired on BBC Radio 4. Mind you, one startling piece of news is that having canned Trevor's World, BBC1 recommissioned Eyes Down for a second series.
