Summary

A rousing gallop through the British Sporting Calendar of the last nine hundred years, as we eavesdrop on some of the most memorable and fascinating events in the colourful history of British sport. From sword fights to boxing, jousting to motor racing, football to cricket, told entirely in the words of those who were there   
  
Performed by an outstanding company of award-winning actors including Dame Eileen Atkins, Cheryl Campbell, Nigel Davenport, Richard Johnson OBE, Hugh Laurie CBE, Michael Maloney, Geoffrey Palmer OBE, Michael Pennington, Prunella Scales CBE, Samuel West, John Wood CBE & full supporting cast. 
    
Also available as part of The Gazettes Box Set, a six-volume edition (Military, Sport & Travel) creating a vivid portrait of British life through the centuries. 
  
It is a highly enjoyable collection. Some pieces are just dazzling. Independent on Sunday 
  
An extraordinary series... deserves a medal. The readers are all excellent and many of them distinguished. The Spectator 
  
From the same stable that produced The Chronicle, my favourite audio this year, I've just listened equally spellbound to a compilation of travellers' tales at home. The Guardian
