Johnners' Trivia Test Match Summary

Johnners' Trivia Test Match by Brian Johnston

Brian Johnston, aka `Johnners', the BBC's long-time cricket commentator, is the umpire in this test of wit and general knowledge, as two teams try to score the highest number of runs under his watchful eye. In these four episodes, team captains Tim Rice and Willie Rushton are joined by Stephen Fry, Paul Merton, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer, Bill Tidy, Caroline Quentin, Bernard Cribbins and Robin Bailey. But which questions will they go for? The easier `single' worth just one run? Or will they try the harder question and attempt a `boundary' (four runs)? Can the batting team reach six questions (an `over') before the other team gets a go? And there's every chance that calls of `Howzat!' or `Bouncer!' can interrupt play... With questions that include trivia and unusual facts, hear the stumps fly and the wickets fall in these four wonderful episodes. 2 CDs. 1 hr 56 mins.

About Brian Johnston

Brian Johnston was born in 1912. He joined the BBC's Outside Broadcasts Department immediately after the war and worked first on live radio broadcasts from theatres and music-halls all over Great Britain. He was one of the first broadcasters to work for both television and radio and began his long association with cricket commentary in the summer of 1946. Between 1948 and 1952 he also presented the live feature 'Let's Go Somewhere' for the popular Saturday night programme In Town Tonight. He became the BBC's first Cricket Correspondent in 1963 and held this post until his retirement in 1972, after which he continued as a regular member of the Test Match Special team. He took over presenting Down Your Way from Franklin Engelmann in 1972 and continued for fifteen years. He published two autobiographies and fourteen other books, including Now Here's a Funny Thing, It's Been a Piece of Cake and Someone Who Was. He died in January 1994.
