About this title


John Arlott was admired by millions for decades, for his cricket commentaries on BBC radio. This affectionate memoir by his son traces Arlott's life from its humble beginnings in Hampshire, to service as a policemen whilst he scraped a living in order to write poetry and occasional journalism. Then by a series of strokes of good fortune, and his own extraordinary talents, he began to work first for the World Service of the BBC and then as a cricket commentator. Not merely an instantly-recognizable voice, he could also write superbly, and his printed journalism, his poetry, his criticism and his autobiographies were all eagerly read. Although Timothy Arlott was a devoted son, this is no work of hagiography, and it includes details of Arlott's marriages and his passion for wine, which in the end helped to bring about his death.
