Almanac Cricket – Ashes 2015: The Ashes 101

While the vast majority of Almanac readers know the origins of The Ashes, far be it for us to assume that everyone who visits us knows what The Ashes is all about.

If you’ve ever wondered, and been too shy to ask – or have someone in your house discovering The Ashes traditions for the first time (and we all had someone explain it to us at sometime or another, yes?) then hit play and enjoy this great Terry Gilliam-esque explanatory short from renowned actor, comedian and raconteur, Stephen Fry.
