Swallows and Hawke is the compelling story of cricket's second-oldest rivalry, exploring 15 English cricket tours to South Africa. It juxtaposes sensational action on the pitch with a kaleidoscope of player experiences - in jail or chased by rhinos - all framed within an analysis of racism, apartheid and African resistance.
