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... :p

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.

Can you provide a youtube link for one of the videos, please?:)

This series was the zenith of the infighting in the PAkistan team during the 90's.Wasim felt he had the team to win in WI but lack of support from the senior players really let him down though later on admitted his approach to tackle the team like Imran did was his undoing as he was still too young to follow Imran style.

A friend just told me that he had seen a DVD a few years back which contained footage from all (or most) of the tests that Bradman played. Does anyone know about this? He said that it might have had Bodyline in its name.

I am also interested in buying these DVDs as well. Who has the best collection in India? Can anyone suggest?
