A look back at Ian Botham's cricketing career, marking 30 years since the Ashes series that saw the former all-rounder at the peak of his powers. Botham started the series against Australia in 1981 as England captain, but resigned following a string of poor performances and media criticism, and what followed at Headingley, Edgbaston and Old Trafford led to the series becoming remembered as Botham's Ashes. This programme charts the player's highs and lows on and off the pitch, as well as focusing on his epic fundraising achievements and subsequent broadcasting career. With contributions from David Gower, Viv Richards, Mick Jagger and Stephen Fry.
