Publisher's Summary

John Arlott was BBC's Voice of Cricket for more than 30 summers and reported on all the key cricket matches from the 1940s to his final commentary in 1980 at Lords. The imagery and wit of an incomparable broadcaster is captured here in a unique collection of historic moments. From the 40s we hear about Bradman's last test, from the 50s Compton's highest Test Score, from the 60s Trueman's 300th Test Wicket and Boycott's first ton, and then the 70s with Arlott's 'freaker' the Lords Streaker, and finally his last commentary at the Lords centenary Test in 1980.
