  • The Clash of the Titans

    A tremendous account of this unique and inimitable battle between the empire and one of its colonies. Stephen Fry has created an account much like his masterful retelling of the Greek Myths. Centre stage, the colourful Shane Warne who was always entertaining along with English heroes, Ian Botham and Freddie Flintoff. My only feedback would be the inclusion of Keith Miller, an Invincible, WWII combat pilot, and ladies man. Our sporting Errol Flynn.

  • Mostly the same again

    Having seen every Test v Australia since 1972, I predicted that the UK media would focus on Botham 1981, Warne 1993, and various during the last 23 years including the usual obsession with 2005, they didn’t let me down, therefore I only listened to Ep.2, 3, 4, 5 and 9. more

  • Hmmm!

    Interesting attempt at the history of the ashes. Found the talking bits by those that was there really good, Stephen Fry does a good job as well and it’s nice to hear the inside stories. Sadly though this is badly let down by the clearly staged ‘commentary’ and I have to say it would have been better if they had just talked about the events and not bothered to try and con you with the fake ‘in game clips’ more
