Storyline

From The Ashes is an uplifting and remarkable tale of a summer that changed English sport forever. In July 1981, rioting and discontent ruled the streets of England. On the playing fields, England was 1-0 down after two tests against old enemy, Australia, and iconic all-rounder Ian Botham, had resigned as English captain, hours before being pushed. Watching on was opposing Captain, Kim Hughes, the Golden Boy of Australian sport. Brilliant and eloquent, he seemed to be a master of the universe. With English cricket on the brink, bookmakers offered odds of 500-1 against an English win in the 3rd test. Yet, Botham would not lie down and rediscovered his cavalier flair in a series of remarkable, match-winning performances that defined him and saw The Ashes returned home. Packed with match action and interviews with the chief protagonists - including Botham, Gower, Willis, Marsh, Hughes and more - From The Ashes is set over one tempestuous month and tells the story of one of the most ...

Not for a cricket tragic
6 January 2019 | by denzil-09434See all my reviews

This is a pretty good documentary. But it's a mainstream film designed to please people who aren't interested in cricket cricket.

It makes a great case for cricket but only cricket fans will watch it, and they'll enjoy it, but not as much as they would enjoy watching the highlights of the matches.

Like the 100 it's ultimately pointless. Designed to please people who don't like cricket. People who won't give it a chance. So why bother?

But my word, wasn't Sir Ian a beautiful, sweaty, sexy hunk?
