In 1968 some local cricket fanatics in the Limavady region pulled off a major coup by securing a game against some of the greatest players from the mighty West Indies team. Such was a good spirit engendered by this game that a return was organised a few years later and a North West select team went on tour to the Caribbean. Players, Ozzie Calhoun and John Hunter, share their memories and John's wife, Sheila, remembers the trip to the West Indies. This clip appeared in Series 3, Programme 1 of 'Super 8 Stories'.
