Description

*NB: This is our last copy of this DVD - the suppliers are no longer stocking it*

'Bodyline' bowling and the events that transpired during the 1932-33 Test Series between Australia and England spread far beyond the cricket field. The furore created by 'Bodyline' soured Anglo- Australian relations and caused diplomatic shock waves that were felt in the corridors of Canberra and Whitehall.

What the cricket world came to know as 'Bodyline' were tactics primarily used by the England Captain Douglas Jardine to curb the prolific scoring of the batting genius, Don Bradman. The bowlers used to spearhead the 'Bodyline' assault were the opening pair from Nottingham, Harold Larwood and Bill Voce.

The immortal words uttered by Australia's Captain Bill Woodfull have now become part of cricket folklore: "There are two teams out there, one is playing cricket. The other is making no attempt to do so!"

The documentary draws on archival film, photographs and interviews with historians, writers and family members of some of the principal characters involved in the 'Bodyline' saga.
