Bodyline - The Ultimate Test

November 17, 2013

This is the story of one of the most well known but perhaps least understood moments of conflict and controversy in the history of sport: the infamous Bodyline test cricket series of 1932 and 1933. Self-confessed cricket tragic and comedian Adam Zwar will try to discover what happened at the crease and chart the wider social and cultural implications of the controversy by enlisting historians, sports scientists, and cricket stars to simulate the actual events. Is there more to the legend of Bodyline than we think? Adam is going back in time to live out a childhood fantasy or two. He is going to use machines, fancy cameras, and the latest in computer graphics. Modern day players will help him prepare. Adam will witness the real damage a high speed cricket ball can do. In the end, Adam will be on his own - with no helmet, no modern padding, and just a bat for protection. How will he handle this ultimate test?

"Bodyline", the word coined to describe a method of attack that involved bowling fast rising deliveries aimed at the batsman's head and body with a ring of close in fieldsmen on the leg side poised for a catch. Used in the 1932-33 Ashes Test Series, that pitted Bradman against Jardine and soured Anglo-Australian relations for years.
