Stephen Fry remembers Sir Ian Botham's 1981 Ashes heroics for a BBC Sport documentary which tells the incredible story of how Botham went from national zero to hero, not once but twice, featuring contributions from Beefy himself, his family, colleagues and eyewitnesses such as Sir Mick Jagger, Sir Viv Richards, Sir John Major, Sir Elton John, Bob Willis and David Gower.

Botham: The Legend of '81 charts one of English sport's most colourful and controversial careers and tells surely its most enduring comeback story.
