Recently retired cricket commentator Henry Blofeld, nicknamed Blowers by Brian Johnston, is celebrated as a leading English sports journalist and bon vivante. He became best known for his inimitable cricket commentaries for Test Match Special on both BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio Five Live. With his larger-than-life personality, sharp wit and trademark turns of phrase - 'My dear old thing' - Blowers established a reputation as a commentator with an accent, vocabulary and syntax that is quintessentially Old Etonian in both style and substance. He has written regularly on cricket, is a wine expert and entertains audiences talking about his life and career at theatres and festivals. Blowers is also available as a guest speaker on the corporate and business circuit.
