    Breaking Boundaries (about Ireland's 2007 World Cup) is supposed to be an incredible watch. Surprisingly I still haven't seen it myself. Of all the people you'd expect to have that DVD...

    Cricket Archives is fantastic, has really rare footage but not a massive amount. If you want I can buy it and send it to you. Just saw your email btw.

    Definitely get those two first if there's a limit on the amount you can afford.

    Yeah thanks a lot. I am really looking at buying these two as a MUST. The Bradman interview is some thing I want. Then there was a Bradman memorial documentary which was available for just a few days on youtube and I sadly have just half of that but that is not as good as the actual Bradman interview.

    This specific Bodyline DVD is the only Bodyline DVD missing from my collection. I have most books on the series as well. Was thinking whether this DVD would be a must and I thought it probably is. It will contain some very historic footage, I am sure.

    Golden Greats? How good are they? Not keen on buying them if they are not 'great'.

    Why do you select the below two series -

    Pakistan in West Indies 1993

    Australia vs India 1980/81 Test Match Series 150 Min.(color)

    I have little knowledge about them. How was the quality of cricket in them?

    Golden greats of batting & the bowlers (especially) has some great clips of almost all the great bowlers & wonderful descriptions of them - A MUST BUY.

    PAK vs WI - Waqar at his peak - you dont want it better. Although PAK lost, some excellent highlights.

    AUS vs IND - As an Indian i think you will enjoy this seeing the likes of Viswanath batting etc..

    I have the Bodyline DVD now. With that, I have all the 3 DVD sets on the Bodyline series - The Tv Series, The ABC documentary and the BBC Documentary plus loads of books on Bodyline. I will spare 3 months to concentrate on Bodyline in due course and absorb the series as much as I can. Delighted to say the least.

    The four videos BBC did on the history of cricket in Australia, England, India and West Indies are really good. A must watch IMO. They are available on youtube if any one is keen to watch.

    Haynes, Lara were superb in that series. Pakistan dropped way too many catches as well!

    I actually saw this on a plane flight to London last year. Was a good watch, but I wouldn't spend money on it.
