Bob Sleigh And The Downhill Racers – The Artist

At the time of writing I was unable to find any information about the artists, Bob Sleigh And The Downhill Racers, performing this song.

Pop Looks Bach (The Theme to Ski Sunday) – The Song

Pop Looks Bach (The Theme to Ski Sunday) is the theme music to the programme is “Pop Looks Bach” was written by Sam Fonteyn and performed by Bob Sleigh and the Downhill Racers. It was used as the time song for the British Ski coverage show ‘Ski Sunday’. It was also used as the theme tune for the BBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics until the 2006 Games. It has become. Avery popular TV theme song and appears in many best of’ compilations. It was first recorded for the Boosey & Hawkes Music Library in 1970, and was not written for the BBC. It has similarities to the opening of Bach’s Fugue in D minor, which is referenced to by a church organ in the background instrumentation of the original recording. The song was used in British supermarket Sainsbury’s’ Christmas advert in 2023

The Downhill Skier- The Shape

This record is modelled into a downhill skier. Downhill is a form of alpine skiing competition. Whereas the other alpine skiing events (slalom, giant slalom, super giant slalom, and combined) emphasise turning and technique, downhill emphasises “the six components of technique, courage, speed, risk, physical condition and judgement”, according to the FIS “International Ski Competition Rules (ICR)”. Speeds of up to 130 km/h (81 mph) are common in international competition. Athletes must have an aerodynamically efficient tuck position to minimise drag and increase speed. The term, “downhill skiing”, is also used as a synonym for alpine skiing as a recreational activity.

Ski Sunday is a weekly magazine-style television show covering winter sports, broadcast on BBC Two in the United Kingdom on Sundays in a late afternoon or an early evening time slot. Originally launched in 1978 following the 1976 Winter Olympics, later forming part of Sunday Grandstand and presented and commentated on by British broadcasters including Ron Pickering and David Vine (who presented the show for twenty years until he took semi-retirement in 1996), the show focused primarily on the blue riband events of downhill skiing and Special Slalom. Following the final edition of Grandstand in early 2007, Ski Sunday became one of the longest-running BBC Sports television programmes still being broadcast; the 2008 series was the 30th.

Bob Sleigh And The Downhill Racers got their name inspired by winter sport activities. Bobsleigh or Bobsled is a winter sport in which teams of 2 to 4 athletes make timed runs down narrow, twisting, banked, iced tracks in a gravity-powered sleigh. International bobsleigh competitions are governed by the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (formerly the FIBT).
