MCC v Rest of the World from Lord's - Final day TONY LEWIS introduces further coverage of this afternoon's play.
Tonight the world's fastest moving rock show comes from Buxton, at 2,000 feet above sea level one of the highspots in the series. Jenny Powell and Tony Baker with newcomers Paul Jordan and Susan Williams rise to the occasion and to several Derbyshire peaks as well, to present powerplays and study the rockclimbers - not burly blokes on mountains but the hottest hits in the charts.
The intrepid team travels by tram, train and narrow boat to discover if the local economy is entirely based on Bakewell tarts; if England's highest pub is only for the upwardly mobile; if the situation at the Buxton Micrarium is being magnified out of proportion; and what the best-dressed wells are wearing this year.
