CAPE CRUSADERS - England flew to South Africa with one objective in mind - winning their first test series there in nearly 40 years! Relive one of the most exciting series of the last decade as two heavyweights of world cricket battled it out for glory. Would the might of Harmison and Flintoff overcome the class of Kallis and Pollock? Featuring every highlight of this epic 5 match Test series, this is a must watch for all cricket fans.
BARMY ARMY - Come the good times or the bad - win, lose or draw - the English cricket team can rely on a group of supporters that are always there for them, at any venue anywhere in the world, supplying much needed visible and vocal support. We refer of course to The Barmy Army, the hardcore supporters that leave their jobs (and their families) for the English cause.
NASSER HUSSAIN - Despite being one of the most successful England captains of all time, Nasser Hussain is a very private person and cricket fans never got to know him... until now! We trace his life from his childhood in Madras to his appointment as England captain and his shock resignation in July 2003. With personal commentary from Nasser and his family backed up with 30 minutes of action footage, this programme uncovers the real Nasser Hussain.
