The TMS team receive sporadic missives from Keith Flett , social historian, serial newspaper letter writer and chairman of the Beard Liberation Front , a group dedicated to the removal of a societal prejudice against the facially follically enhanced or bearded.

Agnew remarked "that we have been joined by the cousin of the match referee" live on air. Brian Johnston Champagne Moment[ edit ] At the end of each test match, the commentators vote for their favourite special moment in the match, and the player involved wins a bottle of Veuve Clicquot champagne.
