Tales from The Oval: Bonus Episode - Kia Oval Skip to main content

Regular presenter Tom Holland takes a week off as his brother James Holland, renowned Second World War historian and co-presenter of the popular podcast, We Have Ways of Making You Talk, joins Jon Surtees (Surrey CCC) to tell the stories of two immense ‘Surrey Men’.

Lord Arthur Tedder was President of Surrey CCC from 1953 to 1958, a period in which the Club won the County Championship every year. He is also one of the most vital but least discussed figures of the Second World War.

George Edwards was President of Surrey in 1979, over 20 years later, but also made a vital contribute to the war effort, thanks largely to his career as an amateur leg spinner.

Future episodes will be released every Wednesday. Next week will see a special bonus episode – coming on Wednesday July 17th – where Tom is back to join Jon and make their call on what is the greatest ever innings played at The Oval.

Tales from The Oval is available from all podcast platforms, including Spotify and Apple.
