Christopher Martin-Jenkins presents highlights of over 50 years of the greatest Test matches England have ever played from their Ashes victory at The Oval in 1953 right through to Hussain's emotional 100 at Lord's to help England beat New Zealand in 2004. Also included is the late Ben Hollioake's stirring One Day innings to beat the Australians in the 1997 Texaco Trophy.

Interspersed are interviews with a number of the protagonists including Ian Botham, Derek Underwood, Ted Dexter, Freddie Flintoff, Darren Gough, Mike Atherton and Stephen Harmison. Over three hours of scintillating cricket that will have viewers on the edge of their seats.
