Mark Pirie on Sky Sport 1

Saturday, April 9, 2011 by Mark Pirie

A Tingling Catch: A Century of New Zealand Cricket Poems 1864-2009 edited by Mark Pirie (published by HeadworX) appeared on "National Bank Cricket Company", Sky Sport 1 (New Zealand channel), Thursday 24 March 2011.

I was interviewed for the show at the NZ Cricket Museum, Basin Reserve, along with cricket historian Don Neely (who wrote the foreword) and Radio NZ National's Jack Perkins reading poem excerpts from the book and talking about the poems that were read. It's a short segment so not all of the material recorded will be used.

The show was shown several times and was replayed on Sky Sport channels. The segment will be posted on the "Cricket Company" web page. Go to and click on "Cricket Company".
