After his record breaking exploits in the previous Ashes series in 1930, England skipper Douglas Jardine knew he had to try a different tack to get the maestro out when they returned for the 1932/33 Ashes series.
Jardine believed Bradman struggled against balls which bounced into his chest and formed the infamous Bodyline tactic to exploit this. But the plan needed the right bowler, and that bowler was former Nottinghamshire miner Harold Larwood.
Highlights from the Bodyline series. The video features the magnificent action of Harold Larwood.
