The Nun's Olympics. Left to Right Spike Milligan, David Cannon, Barbara Bremel, Susan Crosland and Kevin Moran. They didn't have quite the organisation, perhaps, of the Munich Olympics. But the ecclesiastical games did have a spirit of their own. There were nuns, monks, rabbis and vicars gathered in Chiswick to display their prowess for Spike Milligan, whose new BBC TV comedy series 'A Milligan for All Seasons' starts next week. There were hurdle races for the nuns (at least two of whom were fellas), pole vaults for priests . . . and an amazing confessional relay, with each runner stopping to confess every 100 yards. Producer Roger Race, slightly bemused, said: " Spike told us to order a couple of dozen actors in clerical garb and this is the result." Spike himself turned out for the hurdles, dressed as a Roman Catholic priest, hoping to achieve immortality, presumably, as the Father of the Games. 4 September 1972
