Wisden: 150 Not Out

This week sees the publication of the 150th edition of one of the great works of reference, the Wisden Cricketers' Almanac. It has been going since 1864 and is an annual seen not just as the original, but as perhaps the finest, sports reference book.

The BBC's sports correspondent Tim Franks discovers that the almanac is also a striking record of English social history.

Broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Wednesday 10 April 2013.
