          This fascinating film of England v Australia at Lord's, narrated by John Arlott and Ralph Richardson, introduces the viewer “to a very revered patch of English turf, plumb in line with the Pavilion” and guides us through the game. It features footage of Bradman, Compton, Hutton, and Dexter, as well as a spin-bowling master-class from Bert Rhodes who pitches balls that Graeme Swann would be proud of. Beautifully shot, the film is an incredible tribute to a game that “began in quiet places, and lives on in quiet places, deep in the hearts of those who love it”. Full details about this film can be found online at timeimage.wikispaces.com/​Cricket Today, the British Council's sport programme still focuses on education through sport to promote cross-cultural relations britishcouncil.org/​sport.htm We also work in film to promote British filmmaking around the world.

                Bringing together UK and South African poets, the British Council has organised Verbalized which explores new ways of creating, devising and discussing poetry between the two countries. Part of the British Council's New Work New Audiences cultural exchange program, Verbalized developed in the wake of the success of the Beyond Words UK tour in November 2009, featuring South African poet laureate, Keorapetse Kgositsile alongside Lebo Matshile, Philippa Yaa De Villers and Donata Mattera. Continuing the creative impetus of Beyond Words, the British Council and Sustained Theatre asked Zena Edwards (Verse In Dialog) and Segun Lee-French (Speakeasy) to produce a tour of emerging UK poets to South Africa, which became Verbalized, a collaborative performance featuring 10 outstanding poets from South Africa and the UK. The British Council and Sustained Theatre Present now present a Verbalized UK tour.
