Richie Benaud discusses the 1981 England v Australia Cricket Test Series with Ian Botham.
In a frank and revealing interview, Botham (smoking a cigar!) explains the highs and lows of this famous series of matches for The Ashes including the reasons behind his resignation as England's captain and his thoughts on Mike Brearley who replaced him. His choice of his own best personal performance in this test match series is interesting and not what might be expected from those who are aware of the details of these extraordinary matches.
The programme includes extensive highlights (in relation to the length of the programme) of the following Test Matches :
3rd Test Headingley, Leeds 16th - 21st July 1981
4th Test Edgbaston, Birmingham 30th July - 2nd August 1981
5th Test Old Trafford, Manchester 13th - 17th August 1981.
