Cricket's Greatest Entertainers XI
Michael Atherton introduces an incredible team of eleven of the most entertaining players ever to have graced the game. Players of the power of Viv Richards, the guile of Muralitharan, the outrageous skill of Brian Lara, the wizardry of Shane Warne the mastery of Sachin Tendulkar and the raw pace of Shoaib Akhtar and Allan Donald. It's an incredible selection with the great allrounders Ian Botham and Richard Hadlee mixing together with the cream of the modern day game including Freddie Flintoff and Adam Gilchrist. The team is drawn from nearly every cricket-playing nation and one can only imagine the terror in the opposition's eyes if this lot came out to greet them!

Story of Cricket
The legendary David Gower presents over 100 years of the greatest moments in English and world cricket. From WG Grace to Shane Warne, Sobers Six 6s to Laras 375, Bodyline to Bothams Ashes, and the World Cups to the 2002/3 Ashes, all the finest cricketing action is featured as never before.

Crackerjack - The Jack Russell Story
Robert Charles Russell, otherwise known as Jack Russell, is an eccentric character, thats for sure, but he is also a phenomenal talent. Still regarded by experts such as Michael Atherton and Dickie Bird as the best keeper in England, Jack has also turned his attention to art with great acclaim. This programme looks at Jack the man, cricketer and painter and gives a fascinating insight into one of crickets madcap characters.

Freddie's Fireworks
Englands latest superstar Freddie Flintoff talks us through his incredible career from his first ever century against New Zealand to his heroics with the bat and ball during an incredible 2003 season. Backed up with amazing archive including a host of 6s, spectacular inningss, broken bats and thunderous deliveries!

Caribbean Calypso
It has taken England 36 years but it has been worth the wait! It all started with a tremendous bowling performance by Harmison in Jamaica where he took a staggering 7 for 12 to clinch the 1st test. Harmison has now taken a total of 23 wickets to date. In the 2nd Test in Trinidad England cruised to a seven wicket victory with the help of that man Harmisons 6 for 61 and Thorpes 90 in the first innings. Then to Barbados for the 3rd Test where in the first innings Flintoff bowled 5 for 58 and Thorpes 119 not out rekindled Englands chances of a win. Some explosive bowling by Hoggard in the second innings where he grabbed an amazing hattrick destroyed the West Indies middle order. And to top off a fabulous Test series Lara restored some home pride in Antigua by scoring a world record 400 not out in the 4th Test which left England to hang on for a hard-fought draw.
