Test Match Special on air thanks to Skype and an iPad

Jan 19, 2012, 11:25 AM, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The ISDN line, used to provide studio-like quality, failed in Dubai earlier today - but thanks to a combination of iPad and Skype, Test Match Special team came back on air. This is believed to be a first for BBC cricket commentary!
