Documentary on one of the greatest test series between England and Australia! The show is presented in 1.78:1 and is 16:9 enhanced, looking very impressive on the whole. There is a large amount of stock footage from the series that obviously looks worse for wear, but it's still a welcome addition to the disc and retains its sharpness despite its age. The newly filmed footage of interviews with key players, scribes and documentarians comes up a treat, with the colours being very impressive and vibrant. There is the standard ABC-style softness to the whole production but sharpness remains quite good. This piece couldn't have looked any better, with the mixture of archival footage and interviews being great on the eye overall. You'll be focused squarely on what everyone has to say and watching Larwood and Voce try and hammer the Australian batsmen. Very impressive. Nothing sums up the attitude to the bodyline series better than Australian captain Bill Woodfull, whose words go down in cricket folklore as epitomising the thoughts of the players during 1932-33. He simply stated, "there are two teams out there, one is playing cricket. The other is making no attempt to do so!" What happened afterwards is well worth a look, as is this relatively short but detailed look at a key moment in cricket history.
