BBC2 Test highlights: First impressions

Tonight was the first episode of the BBC’s new Test highlights show. It’s called Today at the Test, which is a great name (although given today’s rain and its 45-minute running time, this first one should probably have been called Today at the Test Plus Quite a Bit of Other Stuff.) It’s early days, but it’s immediately obvious that they’ve got some simple yet important things correct. If you missed the 7pm start time, you could bring it up on the iPlayer and click ‘watch from start’It wa...

Evil v Good, day 3: England’s best day so far

We’re pitting an England XI comprising the players we invested in the most against an Antagonists XI using International Cricket Captain’s ‘All Time Greats’ mode. Taken in isolation, day two was less rubbish than day one. However, the nature of Test cricket is that it cannot be taken in isolation, so in fact day two compounded day one such that we arrive here at day three in an even worse position than yesterday morning. England are 19-0 and 208 runs behind. That’s pretty much where yo...

Louise Goffin talks famous parents and finding her own place in the music world

The daughter of legendary songwriters Carole King and Gerry Goffin, Louise Goffin spent her childhood and adolescence in Laurel Canyon, the epicenter of the L.A. music scene in the late ’60s and ’70s.
