Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “This further selection of cricket broadcasts from the BBC archives includes television material as well as radio. Besides commentaries, talks and interviews, David Rayvern Allen has widened the scope to take in programmes where cricket is only an incidental part. The selection ranges from the earliest cricket talk in existence, by Percy Fender in July 1925, to a cricketing ‘Morning Story’ in December 1986. There are sections on Roses matches, club cricket, two famous umpires, a trio of great Kent wicket-keepers (Ames, Evans, Knott) and of ‘desert island castaways’ (Randall, Trueman, Edmonds). Great names from the past include George Gunn, Wilfred Rhodes, Frank Woolley, C. B. Fry, Harold Larwood and Bill Bowes; and there are profiles of Peter May, Colin Cowdrey, Richie Benaud, Dennis Lillee, Viv Richards, lan Botham, Graeme Pollock, Barry Richards, Richard Hadlee and David Gower.”
