It’s 80 years since the BBC first broadcast the famous annual boat race between the universities of Oxford (in the dark blue boat) and Cambridge (light blue).

Clare Balding introduces this year’s coverage of the men’s and women’s races from the banks of the Thames, and is joined by double Olympic gold medallist Helen Glover and Olympic champion Dame Katherine Grainger.

Will Oxford win like last year, or will Cambridge edge it, as they so often do?
