Further info

With more than eighty years of broadcasting experience between them, Henry Blofeld and Peter Baxter (or 'Blowers' and 'Backers') have a fund of hilarious stories of the goings on in and out of commentary boxes round the world and the remarkable characters they have worked with.

Find out what made Brian Johnston laugh, how John Arlott marinated that voice, how good a cricketer Geoffrey Boycott's mother is and what the Queen thought of it all.  It's certainly not just cricket!

Henry 'My Dear Old Thing' Blofeld has been a regular commentator on Test Match Special since 1972 and is one of Britain's most loved broadcasters and a bastion of the cricketing community.  Peter Baxter was the brain behind Test Match Special, producing the programme for 34 years.

A hilariously entertaining show for both cricket and non-cricket lovers alike.
