    WERE YOU A WEST INDIES CRICKET FAN IN THE 1970's and 1980's?

    WERE YOU A WEST INDIES CRICKET FAN IN THE 1970's and 1980's?

    I am writing from a Production Company making a documentary about the heyday of the West Indies cricket team from around 1975 to the end of the 1980s. We are looking for personal archive including photos and footage documenting the teams successes both in the UK and the Caribbean during this time including:

    - West Indian fans traveling to grounds
    - ..in the stands
    - ..outside the grounds celebrating (in bars / homes / on the streets)
    - Action on the field
    - Fans interacting with players (getting autographs / congratulating them etc.)

    Any material included in the final film will obviously be licensed and paid for.

    If you or someone you know may have photos or footage as such, it would be great if you could get in contact

    Many thanks!

    NO, BECAUSE I WASN'T BORN THEN. HOWEVER, I MIGHT VERY WELL HAVE BEEN IF I WAS BORN IN 1962.

    Respected and enjoyed may be the correct words
    You know it makes sense.

    How many times SJS, I'm not Barry or Viv Richards!

    I thought the near-repeat needed a little jazzing-up, as the thread title has been jazzed-up.

    Why does he want footage only in the Caribbean and UK? Why not elsewhere too ?

    Well to be fair if he got footage from Australia he'd have to sit through the likes of John Dyson and Murray Bennett, and you can't blame him for wanting to avoid that...

    I wonder how many people are aware that Dyson maintained a semi-respectable average of 30.00 between 1979/80 and 1983/84?
