Last year, DD Home Entertainment broke all the records with its best-selling ‘THE ASHES: THE GREATEST SERIES’ celebrating England’s 2005 victory over the Australians! The DVD went on to sell over 600,000 copies and break all the sales records for a sports DVD.
Now, on May 8th, DD Home Entertainment is following up its success with two new and totally unique cricket DVDs – ‘LORD’S IN THE 21st CENTURY’ and ‘HIDDEN ASHES’.
‘HIDDEN ASHES’ promises to show you England’s sensational 2005 Ashes victory over the Aussies as you’ve never seen it before! This glorious new production for Channel 5 chronicles the action using only unbroadcast and previously unseen footage from alternative cameras and camera angles! There’s plenty of delicious slow motion and close up action to savour!
You can re-live in giant close-up the joy and despair of the players as the series takes its many twists and turns; sit in the stand with the fans at Old Trafford as England come up agonisingly short in the Third Test; see the utter bemusement of the England players as Ricky Ponting explodes at Trent Bridge after being run out; wince as Kevin Pietersen is hit by a 93-mph bullet from Brett Lee at The Oval; and feel the genuine warmth that emerges between the teams as this fabulous series unfolds.
Lord’s Cricket Ground is the ‘home of cricket’. Every cricketer dreams of playing there. Steeped in tradition, its Long Room and Museum are wonderful repositories of cricket history. Made with unprecedented access, ‘LORD’S IN THE 21ST CENTURY’ takes you inside the hallowed cricket institution as never before, celebrating the great traditions of Lord’s, the MCC and cricket while looking at the new developments which ensure that Lord’s will continue to be regarded as world-class, as well as world-famous, in the future.
Celebrities and players alike give their views on Lord’s, from Ian Botham, Shane Warne and Brian Lara to Michael Palin and Barry Norman. The viewer is invited behind the scenes with players, coaches, the groundsman, Mick Hunt, and even the resident artist, Karen Neale, to discover what makes Lord’s so unique. The DVD also follows the MCC touring sides around the world and the MCC women’s team as they spread the cricket message. …
