Don’t forget Fire in Babylon, which documents the great West Indies team of the 70s and 80s, is on sale today.

For every copy of the film purchased £1 will be donated to ‘Chance to shine supported by Brit Insurance’ and will go towards a feasibility study to see if a similar programe could reinvigorate cricket in the West Indies.

The film charts the glorious supremacy of the late 70s and 80s West Indies cricket team. In a turbulent era of apartheid in South Africa; race-riots in England and civil unrest in the Caribbean, the West Indian cricketers struck a wonderfully defiant blow at the forces of white prejudice world-wide.

Legends Clive Lloyd, Sir Vivian Richards, Gordon Greenidge, Desmond Haynes and the fearsome fast-bowling quartet, nicknamed the ‘Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse’, Michael Holding, Andy Roberts, Joel Garner and Colin Croft, all contribute to this inspiring and insightful film.
