John Emburey and Terry Alderman, Edgbaston 1981
In the fourth episode of Ashes to Ashes, former England off-spinner John Emburey and the series' leading wicket-taker, Australia's Terry Alderman, share their memories of the fourth Test of the magical 1981 series. If the preceding Test at Headingley had been turned on its head by Ian Botham's extraordinary assault with the bat, at Edgbaston he grabbed the ball when all seemed lost and embarked on an unforgettable spell. Emburey and Alderman recall the topsy-turvy match and the epic Sunday evening session when Botham ran through Australia and lifted the nation's spirits for the second time in a miraculous fortnight. Narrated by Chief Sports Writer Paul Hayward, and introduced by Cricket Correspondent Scyld Berry.
