The Best Views from the Boundary (Hardback). Test Match Special's Greatest Interviews. Views From the Boundary’ – the Saturday lunchtime interview – has always been a highlight of the BBC’s Test Match Special, a programme with a special place in the heart of every English cricket fan. The well-known interviewees are from all walks of life and united only by one thing – a love of the game.

The oft cited quote:allegedly occurred when Michael Holding of the West Indies was bowling to Peter Willey of England in a Test match at the Oval in 1976. Brian Johnston was a great fan of the British Music Hall and revelled in its often mildly risqué "schoolboy" humour. The "An Evening with Johnners" one-man show that he performed at the end of his life included many excruciating jokes, as well as his broadcasting and cricket reminisces. He was appointed OBE in 1983 and CBE in 1991.

More Views from the B. .I enjoyed this book, though some of the celebrities it features are a bit before my time. The problem is that it is very hard to recreate the sparkle and spontaneity of the bliss that is a live radio interview - about cricket.

He was as quick to spot anything funny off the field as he was on it. No one was immune from his leg- pulling and yet it was always done with high good humour and never with cruelty. It was at The Oval in 1976 when England batsmen were struggling against the West Indian fast bowlers that he told the listening cricket world: 'The bowler's Holding, the batsman's Willey. Initially, it must have made rather surprising listening, but, sure enough, Michael Holding was running in to bowl to Peter Willey.

One of the highlights of BBC Radio's "Test Match Special" is the Saturday lunchtime celebrity interview, "Views from the Boundary". Personalities from all walks of life - actors, writers, musicians, footballers, politicians and more - are invited into the commentary box to chat about themselves over a glass of champagne. The only qualification they need is a love of cricket. This collection features some of the most memorable conversations of the past 11 years, from such diverse characters as Alan Ayckbourn, Lord Runcie, Harold Pinter, John Major, Peter O'Toole, Eric Idle and Leslie Thomas. The author also wrote "It's Been a Piece of Cake" and "Someone Who Was".
