Marylebone Cricket Club will be hosting a unique lecture on the fascinating subject of Hawk-Eye technology on Tuesday 25th May 2010, in the Thomas Lord Suite at the Home of Cricket.
The lecture will be given by Paul Hawkins, the inventor of Hawk-Eye, which is the ball-tracking technology used by cricket broadcasters for LBW decisions.
Involving the audience, and asking them to judge certain LBW decisions, Hawkins will give an interactive explanation of how the system works, discuss its accuracy, and seek to dispel some of the myths surrounding the technology.
The lecture will commence at 7pm, and after approximately 45 minutes there will be a 15-minute interval.
After the interval a Question-and-Answer session, with an invited panel of special guests, will begin.
BBC Test Match Special's Jonathan Agnew will chair the panel made up of the following: former England cricketer Geoffrey Boycott, Test Match umpire Billy Bowden and Hawk-Eye inventor Paul Hawkins.
