Viv Richards video from the BBC archive

The BBC have uploaded a whole raft of videos of West Indian greats from their archive as part of their coverage of the England v West Indies series. They're only available within the UK, unfortunately.

Like any right-thinking cricket fan, we went straight to the Viv Richards video. It's been a while since we saw any footage, but he's just as we remember him: Standing nonchalantly in his cap, like a cricket balls's made of foam or something similarly non-threatening, rather than rock hard and bearing the potential to actually kill you.

Our favourite moments are when he steps away from the stumps and positively flays the ball back over - or is it AT - the bowler's head. You can see why no-one liked bowling at him. Murderous.
