The Inside Story
England Retain the Ashes and for the very first time in cricket, an exclusive documentary featuring unseen footage and interviews filmed throughout the incredible 2010/2011 Ashes Series.
The 2010/11 Ashes Series: The Inside Story is a 90 minute feature length documentary examining the drama, intrigue and excitement that surrounded the 2010-11 Ashes series in Australia. By drawing on a wide range of different sources and perspectives, from players, commentators, journalists, fans including the Barmy Army, umpires and the back room staff, The Inside Story will get under the skin of the series and provide an all access view from inside and out.
This comprehensive documentary will incorporate a wealth of never before seen footage and behind the scenes action, and it will employ all the latest technology that surrounds and characterises modern cricket, from “Stump Cam” to “Eagle Eye” in order to tell fans and enthusiasts the complete story of the 2010-11 Ashes series.
An Ashes series is arguably the most intense and fascinating contest in world sport. Watched by millions of passionate fans across the globe, the Ashes is 25 days of hard fought sporting drama and competition stretched out across an entire summer. It is unique in its scope and depth. Like any ongoing, shifting sports narrative, the key characters involved in the Ashes rise or fall depending on skill, concentration and luck. One moment among so many can change the outcome of the whole series. One bad bounce or one dropped catch can deliver or end an entire career.
For the first time in a generation, the English team arrived in Australia with a genuine belief that it could win. The Australian side was in turmoil suffering its worst run of form in decades. It was set to be an epic battle where leaders would rise and fall and nothing would be taken for granted.
The Inside Story, is the comprehensive story of that battle, told by those that were there. In the history of Ashes cricket no program has sort to go this far into hearts and minds of all those involved in this grandest of sporting contests. Fans will know what it feels like to be part of the England and Australian teams as England battle to win the Ashes on Australian soil for the first time in 23 years.
In an Ashes series, cricket becomes more than just a game.
Relive the best of the action from the Ashes Series 2010/2011 Down Under.
England travelled to Australia in November as the current holders of the Ashes with arguably the best prepared and most complete squad they have had for many years, with the sole purpose of winning in Australia for the first time since Mike Gatting’s men won 2-1 in the 1986-87 series. England have only managed 3 wins in 25 Ashes Tests Down Under since then and skipper Andrew Strauss will be leading from the front in trying to show the Aussies that England cannot just compete, but beat them on their own turf in what is sure to be one of the greatest Ashes series ever contested.
Featuring highlights from all 5 Tests over 3 discs, this is the definitive Official Highlights of the 2010/2011 Ashes Series in Australia.
