One of my favourite web sites is that of British Pathe, which has loads of amazing footage of days gone by from the old Pathe news reels.
By entering a search term of "cricket" you can see all the greats, right back to WG Grace.
This afternoon I came across footage, albeit brief, of Derbyshire's George Pope bowling for England against South Africa in 1947. You can see it at
George's run up and action can be seen around 1 minute 8 seconds in.
Great for those who never saw a true County legend in action. Enjoy!
