    DARTS TARTS - WELCOME TO MY WORLD
    Jacques Peretti sets out to find out what happened to the game that obsessed him as a kid.
    He meets the heroes of the darts underground: Nigel, a 54 year old biker and darts fundamentalist; Justin, the man who gave up his job to become world champion (but didn't); Bob Potter, the darts millionaire (and real life model for Peter Kaye's wheelchair-bound nightclub owner in Phoenix Nights) and Caroline the careworker from Bristol, struck down by a dreaded affliction that means she can't let go of the dart.
    Plus, the superstars such as Bobby 'the dazzler' George and Andy 'the Viking' Fordham and Ross Montgomery
    Writer Jacques Peretti grew up glued to darts: a gripping, beer-swilling sport with high scores and larger-than-life stars. In this documentary, he presents a (bull?s) eye-opening account of the sport's heady popularity in the 1970s and 1980s. He speaks to the fans and the players, including the Rabid Squirrels, the worst darts team in Britain.
    Back in the 1970s and 80s, darts was one of the biggest sports in the country. Every pub had its own dart board and mini league of players. The UK and World Darts championships attracted the kind of TV audience figures that are unheard of nowadays, attracting more than 18 million viewers.
    The likes of Eric "The Crafty Cockney" Bristow, Jocky Wilson, John Lowe and Bobby George were household names. Even game shows got into the act, with Jim Bowen regularly enjoying a 'bit of Bully' with an enraptured audience every Sunday evening on Bullseye.
    But then, the UK's love affair with the oche and the arrow came to an end. In the space of a few short years, the whole idea of a Darts tournament being a major TV ratings hit would go from being perfectly normal to totally laughable. But why was this? Why did the British fall out of love with darts?
    In Darts Tarts, writer and columnist Jacques Perretti sets out to discover what really happened to the game that fixated him as a child. He meets former players, obsessive fans, and people who have achieved the darts equivalent of a hole-in-one - the Nine Dart Finish.
    Jacques also gets to meet the man who's turned his garden shed into a Museum of Darts, and the Rabid Squirrels, said to be the worst darts team in the whole of Britain.

    I watched the Justin Lee Collins documentary at the weekend and I thought it was a load of rubbish. This so-called self confessed darts freak but who had an old cork board that was never used!

    What the hell was he thinking? Turning pro in 6 weeks? He was crap to begin with and not much better when he finished. At his best he was no better than a very average pub player. Even still he kept on insisting that he was going to go pro!!!

    The scene where he was taking practise throws at a board being held on a shop counter took the biscuit and fact that he was throwing from about 2 foot forward of the oche just made it totally unbelievable.

    Either he was totally deluded or it's just a load of made up rubbish.
    He has no natural talent and endless hours of practise did nothing for him so what did he expect? He's the worst player on a local pub team and yet he goes off to compete in tournaments against serious county players and professionals?

    The only decent laugh I got was when he came out of the hairdressers looking like a barbie doll. Bristol Flyer my hole.

    I have to agree, it was pretty cringe worthy stuff.
