By virtue of his peerless batsmanship and a career stretching from the 1940s to the 1970s, Tom Graveney is now a national treasure - the favourite cricketer of so many fellow players, enthusiasts and aficionados. The character behind the affable facade is now unlocked, revealing Graveney as a true entertainer, at the fireside as at the crease.
