The BBC Inside Out Programme covering local cricket and overseas professionals in the 1960s, incl. Sir Garfield Sobers, Frank Reynolds (Norton CC), Stuart Wood (Stone CC) and Nigel Johnson (Radio Stoke) was broadcast this week on Monday evening. This programme may have escaped the notice of many of our clubs but does provide a good 10 mins insight into the playing strength of the NSSCL 50 years ago and the international cricketers who joined our clubs as pros and entertained thousands – contents of “Fifty Years On” provided research material for the production.

The programme can still be seen until mid October on catch up – BBC iPlayer – starts at 20:12 in.
