Letter: Forever lost

A HISTORIC moment at Lord's Cricket Ground. The South African opening batsmen come out down the Pavilion steps to set foot on the turf for the first time in 29 years - and the BBC miss it] What we are subjected to instead is a recorded sequence of the pixie-like figure of Geoffrey Boycott prodding the pitch with a key, and babbling about the state of the grass.

Finally the BBC2 cameras focus live at last - and the batsmen are already on the pitch.

Who is the idiotic producer who prevented the world from seeing a moment of sporting history as it happened?
