    And God Created Cricket

    Hello all,

    I've just concluded the brilliant book on cricket's vast history, "And God Created Cricket" by Simon Hughes. After reading it, I can't help but imagine a television show based on this book.

    2014 will be the 150th anniversary of the Home of Cricket, Lord's. Therefore, I believe it is just to have a series on the history of cricket and the humour in Hughes's book will do the job in my eyes.

    The only concern I have is who would do it and how? Does anybody know how I could make this idea aware and who can I contact too make it happen?

    Please help, Rhys Lloyd. ( @rtlloyd98 )

    Email Stephen Fry. He might jump at the chance to play W G.
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    I would imagine that Yosser himself might be quite keen on that idea, and as he works for Channel 5, albeit indirectly, is probably in the best position to make a pitch

    Brian Blessed for WG I reckon, Benedict Cumberbatch as Jardine.

    Considering who owns channel 5 I think that might result in a bit of a weird take on the book.
