Radio 4 to make a three part series about the work of the ECB
The England and Wales Cricket
Board (ECB) today announced that it has invited a BBC Radio Four team
to spend the next six months making a three part series about the
work of the ECB.
Award-winning journalist, Brian King, who will spend much of his time
in the ECB's offices listening to, observing and recording some of
the day-to-day happenings, will produce the programme.
Commenting on the decision
to allow the BBC 'inside access' to the ECB, John Read, the ECB's
Director of Corporate Affairs said:
"These programmes are intended to highlight the nature, scope
and complexity of the ECB's role as cricket's National Governing Body,
and to give Radio Four listeners a taste of the many challenges and
issues involved in running a national sport. Cricket has been praised
by the Government for the responsible and professional way in which
the sport is managed, and the ECB will shortly be launching its National
Strategy for the development of cricket in England and Wales."
