When the veteran broadcasterand cricket commentator
Brian Johnston died earlier this year, the Prime Minister said that summers would never be the same again. John Major is just one of many taking part in this affectionate tribute to
Johnston, who was a permanent member of BBC Radio's Test
Match Special team since retiring as the BBC's cricket correspondent in 1972. Johnston brought to the commentary box a unique quality - he was a diligent describer of the game, never forgetting that cricket fans switched on to hear the score, but he combined this with jokes, anecdotes and cake consumption that appealed to the less-devoted sports audience.
Christopher Martin-Jenkins introduces the programme, and among those paying their respects are Denis Compton ,
Geoff Boycott and David Gower. Producer Emma Josling
(A recording from Westminster Abbey ofa celebration of Brian Johnston 's life will be broadcast on Radio 2 on Tuesday 17 May)

Bahia of all the Saints
Brazil's major slave-trading port for nearly three centuries, Bahia has a black population of over 80 per cent which maintains the legacy of African tradition at every level of daily life. Jana Bokova 's vivid film portrait captures the spirit of the Bahian people, their music, culture, and most of all their religion - candomble - a fusion of Catholic and African religious beliefs. The film culminates in the annual celebration of carnival.
