This is a series of interviews with famous sports people from the past in conversation with Cliff Morgan, the international rugby player and one-time BBC sports presenter. As far as cricket goes he talks at length with Ted Dexter who was an aggressive middle-order batsman of ferocious power and a right-arm medium bowler. He captained Sussex and England in the early 1960s and was involved in early versions of the one-day game.
