  • Short Summary

    Footage of the first test in Nottingham 1930.

  • Description

    This is a record for the cricket tapes version of G 1720 - First Test. May be silent version of 30/5 story.

    Nottingham, Nottinghamshire. Title reads: "The First Test - Thrilling play in game packed with surprises - as only the King of Games can be!" 1930?

    Players take to the field. Rather foggy footage (over exposed?). Various shots of the match. Panning shot of the ground from a high angle. More shots of the game in progress. Again contrast is poor. Shot of crowd in stands applauding
