When Sunset+Vine produced the historic 2005 England vs Australia Ashes series for Channel 4 they recorded every ball from ten different angles. There were literally ten versions of every four, every six and every wicket, only a handful of which were seen on the Live Channel 4 transmission, mostly as slow-motion replays. There were also many images recorded that were never seen at all on C4.
Now, Sunset+Vine have reviewed more than 150 hours of footage from the ten cameras and have put together the story of the series from the very best of these pictures. The result is the most dramatic look yet at those five extraordinary cricket matches. 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 superbly run out by substitute fielder Gary Pratt; wince as Kevin Pietersen is hit by a 93-mph bullet from Brett Lee at The Oval; feel the genuine warmth that emerges between the teams as this fabulous series unfolds.
How long did it actually take Freddie Flintoff to peel away from the England celebrations at Edgbaston and go and console Brett Lee - the single defining image of the summer? Where does Shane Warne keep his Trebor mints when he's fielding at slip? Which England player does Michael Clarke share his chewing gum with?
It's all in Hidden Ashes, the most vivid television account yet of the greatest cricket series ever played!
