Stephen Fay & David Kynaston
Tue 21 Aug 10:00 - 11:00
Baillie Gifford Main Theatre
The Soul of Cricket and a Nation
If nothing defines the image of England more than the BBC and cricket then Stephen Fay and David Kynaston’s story of the iconic BBC sports broadcasters John Arlott and E W Swanton reflects the reality of a fracturing national identity in post-war Britain. Their story, and the story of cricket, captures a period of great social conflict and change; changes that resonate in our current tumultuous times. They discuss their book Arlott, Swanton and the Soul of English Cricket with James Runcie.
