It's Easter and that can mean only one thing - the traditional battle for supremacy on the River Thames between Oxford and Cambridge. Witness the incredible rowing skills of these top but amateur athletes as they put their heart and soul into one emotional day each year. There's no second place, it is winning or losing, and both teams want to be victorious more than anything. The race itself is just fifteen or so minutes, but what an exciting quarter of an hour!
