A lively jog through the British Sporting Calendar as we eavesdrop on some of the most memorable and fascinating events of the British at play. From marble games to water speed records, from fox hunting to ballooning and from cock fighting to the very British sport of... hopping, 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, Alex Jennings, Richard Johnson OBE, Hugh Laurie CBE, Michael Maloney, Geoffrey Palmer OBE, Michael Pennington, 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
