    One of my fave programs - its a real tradition for me to watch it every year, without fail.
    I was almost traumatised 2 years ago when it was on for 6 weeks prior to xmas with weekly heats as opposed to the usual 1 heat per day in between xmas/new year.
    Luckily last year they returned to its original TV format!
    All time best - pudzianowski - in his prime was simply an unstoppable monster of a man.
    This event really struck me as he almost seemed to be running with 150kgs in each hand!?!? .
    this video - he is at 5:32http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h59BZrLwFbM

    Absolutely unmissable! It's never been quite the same since the BBC took it off a few years ago though; Channel Five's coverage just isn't the same somehow.

    I never liked it....I remember they used to show it on at Easter Time in the main...my Mum used to say if the strongmen weren't careful they'd get hernias with all that straining....lol. I can't subtract that from it whenever its mentioned or I see it listed in the tv guides....yes, they were strong but I used to yearn for them to be like Superman with real superhuman feats of strength....lol, and they looked more fat than anything...
