Why is the Ashes Rivalry so Fierce?

Chris Rogers looks ahead to Adelaide, plus a new Ashes documentary and Bodyline in song.

Former Australia opener Chris Rogers joins the team to look ahead to the second Ashes Test in Adelaide as England aim to bounce back from their 10-wicket defeat in the first Test in Brisbane.

What makes the Ashes one of the fiercest rivalries in sport? Filmmaker Peter Dickson tells us about his new documentary series which aims to answer that question through interviews with some of the most famous characters in Ashes history.

And we’ll revisit the infamous Bodyline series through the eyes of an Australian cricket enthusiast who has re-recorded a Sydney Music Hall song about fast bowler Harold Larwood and England’s controversial tactics.
