Tea and Scotch with Bradman
In 1995, journalist and author Roland Perry wrote to Sir Donald Bradman requesting an interview for a biography he was planning of the great cricketer. Surprisingly, the Don agreed. It was the start of a conversation that continued for years, during which the real Bradman shone, not only as a great sportsman, but musician, brilliant thinker and humourist with a fondness for tea and a Scotch or two.
Roland paints an intimate and revealing portrait of the man many regard as the greatest Australian Cricketer of all time.
Roland joined Harvey Deegan on “Remember When” to talk about this fascinating new book.
