Beginning with the flickering black and white images of the first giant of the game WG Grace, this compilation presented by David Gower includes the finest moments of the 'Summer Game' from all over the world.

From the mighty pacemen such as Holding and Garner, Lillee and Thomson to the great destroyers of bowling like Botham, Hobbs and Bradman, Story of Cricket covers the greatest moments of the game.

Record breaking innings from Viv Richards and Brian Lara are set against the bowlers whose skills have changed the nature of the game from Harold Larwood's controversial Bodyline style to Shane Warne's stunning first delivery in test cricket in England.

The five day marathon of the test match and the attributes required such as strength of character and immense concentration is placed against the breathless pace of the one day game.

Great fielders and the eccentric characters of the game like Derek Randall and Rodney Marsh also feature as do some of the great moments from the county championship such as Gary Sobers' record breaking six sixes at Glamorgan.

Also included is England's historic test series victory over the West Indies in 2000, which witnessed the last international appearance on these shores of two greats of the modern game, Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh, England's famous defeat of Pakistan in the dark, and highlights from India's incredible series victory over Australia.

Produced with footage courtesy of British Movietonenews, Pathe, BBC, and Channel 4.

This programme is an updated version of Century of Cricket, which was available as Catalogue Number GUP2009W, and was released during October 2000.
