Our latest member I’m pretty sure must be our popular newscaster Sophie Raworth?

RAW TV is a documentary production company who have produced the following that may have a connection.

"The Prince of Pennsylvania" was made in 2016 for the ESPN network about the so called "Foxcatcher" wrestling programme funded by John du Pont.

However, there is no member of their credited staff named Sophie

Hi Peter
If it is “our” Sophie it’s well known that she is far from being a studio couch potato.
This impressive extract from Wiki says a lot.
———————————————————————————————————

On 17 April 2011, Raworth completed the London Marathon, despite collapsing two miles from the finish line.[15] By 2017, she had completed all six World Marathon Majors.[16]

In April 2018, Raworth completed the Marathon des Sables, a six-day, 251 km (156 mi) ultramarathon in the Sahara Desert.[17]
