I WITNESS HISTORY

A series of audio dramas which look at historical events from the eyes and in the imagined words of those who were there, or who might have been there.

The Greatest Game - December 26, 1994

Reader: Brian Abbott

Published on: December 26, 2018

For the final piece in the series, unless we hear the clamour of a thousand voices begging us to continue, we return to a personal story, which is also attribute both to the greatest game of Rugby ever in any code, and to my elder brother Harry, who features in the story and who died in December 2019.

And the whole iwitnesshistory series is dedicated to the memory of Matt Marks whose incredibly diverse, plangent and vision-conjuring music has run like a heartstring through all of these stories.

To misquote Shakespeare: “If music be the food of love, And Rugby League the game of life, Play on, guys. Play on”.
