They brought the world to it's knees, and a nation to it's feet.

Fire in Babylon is the breathtaking story of how the West Indies triumphed over its colonial masters through the achievements of one of the most gifted teams in sporting history.

In a turbulent era of apartheid in South Africa; race riots in England and civil unrest in the Caribbean, the West Indian cricketers, led by the enigmatic Viv Richards, struck a wonderfully defiant blow at the forces of white prejudice worldwide. Their undisputed skill, combined with a fearless spirit, allowed them to dominate the genteel game at the highest level, replaying it on their own terms.

This is their story, told in their own words.

A fascinating look at an era that saw a small group of disparate islands take on the world and win.

Fire In Babylon is great. After facing humiliation at the hands of the Aussies, the West Indian cricket team looked to rebuild a young team around what was to become the most formidable pace attack since Lilly and Thompson. The film features interviews with West Indians outside the cricket team providing insight into the impact they had on society and culture amongst the tiny island nations in the Caribbean. The interviews with the players were very interesting. I never knew there was a place where popular songs could include cricket scores and descriptions of overs. It's well worth watching. It's very enjoyable.
