About the show
After telling the remarkable story of the British and Irish Lions on their famous tour to South Africa in 1997, “Inside The Tour” returns for a second series, charting cricket’s astonishing Ashes series between Australia and England in 1986/87. It was hugely significant for both nations; after this, England wouldn’t win the Ashes again for 18 years. The embarrassing defeat sent Allan Border’s Australia to rock bottom and yet, somehow, they recovered to become a cricket superpower. This is the story of that incredible journey, told by players from both teams plus host Mark Pougatch, in Australia at the time as a backpacking 18-year old. His diary brings to life a crazy, chaotic story of unknown call-ups, unlikely heroes, megastar supporters and a result which shocked the sporting world.
