'Cricket' - then and now Published: 16 July 2013

Courtesy of the British Council, Lord's TV brings you a short documentary film made in 1950 of the 1948 Test match at Lord's between England and Australia during that Ashes series.

Narrated by Sir Ralph Richardson and BBC Test Match Special great John Arlott, the film gives a fascinating insight into Lord's from a bygone era as it weaves between the Test match - which included greats such as Don Bradman, Ray Lindwall, Len Hutton and Denis Compton - and a general cricketing education.
