How do you get wifey interested in cricket. Suggest watching a TV series called Bodyline which was a seven part period drama set in the 1930s covering the controversial Ashes tests in 1932 - 33.
I watched this as a kid and couldn't believe I had found the opportunity to watch this again, particularly as wifey also seemed keen. One episode down and wifey is hooked as we follow the escapades of Douglas Jardine, Don Bradman and Harold Larwood.
This is a real, boy's own adventure of daring do and I can't wait to get into this. But my biggest surprise is that it is in fact an Australian TV series released in 1984.
Go and watch it if you can find it and love cricket.
