From The Ashes - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
FROM The Ashes is the uplifting and remarkable tale of a summer that changed England forever.
July 1981, rioting and discontent rule the streets of Britain. Meanwhile, on the playing fields, England are 1-0 down after two tests against the old enemy, Australia; and Ian Botham, their iconic all-rounder, has resigned as English captain, moments before being pushed.
With English cricket on the brink, bookmakers offer odds of 500-1 against an English win in the 3rd Test.
Yet, a reinvigorated Ian Botham refuses to lie down and rediscovers his cavalier flair in a series of match-winning performances that enthral a nation and see the Ashes retained.
Narrated by Tom Hardy (Bronson, Inception) and packed with match action and contemporary interviews with the chief protagonists – including Ian Botham, David Gower, Mike Brearley, Bob Willis, Rod Marsh, Australian captain Kim Hughes and more – From The Ashes tells the evocative story of one of sports’ greatest ever comebacks.
