The basketball event from the 1979 UK Final of.. The Superstars!

The final was staged in Cwmbran, Wales, and despite the weather conditions it proved to be a high class final.

Brian Jacks had won the UK and shared a win in the European final the previous year and came back as defending champion. He had won the first two events but faced tough competition in the basketball event, which was new to Superstars that year.

Jacks sets off and posts a pretty good time for five baskets, only to be beaten by both Daley Thompson and then Past Masters champion for that year, John Sherwood.

Commentary from the legendary Superstars team of David Vine and Ron Pickering.

Competitors for the final were:
