For 15 years or more just the thought of walking out to bat and having Malcom Marshall or Andy Roberts or Michael Holding, or Joel Garner or Colin Croft steaming into bowl at you would be enough to send men into meltdown.

The story is told entirely from the West Indians' point of view, and in their own words - this is not so much a discussion as a celebration of an inarguably glorious period of sporting history. The list of contributors is a cricketing hall-of-fame roll call: Richards, Lloyd, Holding, Roberts, Greenidge, Haynes, Garner and more are joined by other significant names from Caribbean culture. All are hugely entertaining orators who could easily have kept this relatively short production going for another 3 hours.
