Description

Cliff Morgan talks to sporting personalities of the past. In this recording he is in conversation with the England Test cricket captain, Ted Dexter. Ted Dexter’s love of cricket started at school. After National Service he went to Cambridge where he gained a Cricket blue, but no degree. His success in university cricket led to his joining Sussex County Cricket Club, becoming captain in 1960. Under his captaincy Sussex won the first Gillette Cup competition at a time when one day cricket was in its infancy. In his fairly short first class career he played in more than sixty test matches, thirty of them as captain. A serious accident in 1964 led to his virtual retirement as a player but from 1988 to 1993 he was chairman of the England selectors and also became President of the MCC. “Morgan the Magnificent” was the title given to Cliff Morgan by South African newspapers when he toured the country with the British Lions team in 1955. His success in that tour earned him the captaincy of Wales the following season. Cliff was born into a mining family in the Rhondda in 1930 and joined Cardiff Rugby Club straight from school, playing at fly-half. When his playing career ended in 1958 he joined the BBC, working as a TV commentator and producer. For the last ten years of his BBC career he was Head of Television Sport and Outside Broadcasts, with overall responsibility for the coverage of state occasions as well as all major sporting events. After he retired from the staff of the BBC he became the presenter of the popular Radio 4 programme "Sport on Four".
