Oxford edge thrilling race

Oxford won the 2003 Boat Race, and with it the Aberdeen Asset Management Trophy, by the narrowest of margins after one of the most exciting finishes of all time.

The Dark Blue crew edged over the line just one foot ahead of their rivals from Cambridge to record a second successive triumph in the 149th meeting of the two varsity teams.

BBC audience figures for The Race were 7.7 million
