Testing Times with Test Match Special on Tour
Test match special producer Peter Baxter presents tales of commentating capers from the Gabba to Eden Park in Jamaica. For 34 years from 1973 Peter Baxter was BBC producer of the hugely popular Test Match Special, and during that time he reported on Test matches from around the world. This funny and revealing book takes us behind the scenes as Baxter and his much-loved TMS colleagues?do battle with local conditions and sometimes bizarre red tape to bring back home the latest news of England’s progress (or otherwise) on the field. It should have been straightforward, but somehow it rarely was...?The joy of Baxter’s book is that it communicates a love of cricket and shows why, whatever its flaws, we still need TMS.’ Michael Billington, Wisden Cricketer, on The Best Views from the Boundary.
