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.

I thought it was well put together but I'm not a fan of john and didn't find much in it funny.
yes. I listen to a lot of BBC Sport and love a lot of the commentators past and present.
No. I don't think picturing John in a commentary box would be the most interesting imagery.
I wanted to like this book but unfortunately I didn't.
What is a really good British history book?
Anyone who hear him speak on the radio will to this day miss his voice. This went some way to reminding one but not nearly enough....there should be another archive of his words
The Clive Lloyd quote of course.
I have listed to it three times al the way through....
Don't worry that it's so short....it's worth it.
