This tells the story of England's greatest bowler the world has ever seen. A man years ahead of his time and in many respects brought professionalism to sport. This is about the life and times of a man born into Victorian poverty and in the squalid slums of northern England who was determined that his own family was never going to suffer. A talented cricketer who challenged the Establishment with all its 'toffee nosed' social conventions. He helped to win the Ashes for England and, as well as playing for Wales later in his career, he continued to succeed for many years afterwards and not only on the field of play. "You pay and I will play for you" (and they did) that was his motivation to do well. He was actually paving the way for working-class people to have the opportunity for a much better life.
