CSCC featured in BBC's Great American Railroad Journeys

Colorado Springs Cricket Club was featured in BBC's "Great American Railroad Journeys"

The Colorado Springs Cricket Club was featured in BBC's Great American Railroad Journeys. CSCC were filmed on 9-Aug-2016, and this episode featured on 1-Feb-2017 on BBC.

It aired on BBC2, but not sure if this video can be played here in the US. GREAT AMERICAN RAILROAD JOURNEYS - Canon City, Colorado, to Colorado Springs
Great American Railroad Journeys, Series 2

However, all of the last series of Great American Railroad Journeys are uploaded on Youtube, and so was this episode 8.

Michael Portillo reaches the Rocky Mountains of Colorado at Canon City, from where he heads out into the spectacular gorge of the Arkansas River aboard the historic narrow-gauge Royal Gorge Railroad. Along the way, he learns how controversy over the construction of the railroad caused bullets to fly.

In Colorado Springs, Michael discovers an unexpected British outpost where he is enlisted to join the cricket team.

At the foot of Pike's Peak, a choir sings an iconic American hymn, composed at the turn of the 20th century and inspired by the magnificent views to be seen from the summit. Michael heads 14,115 feet above sea level to see it for himself, aboard the Pike's Peak Cog Railway.

Its a great documentary about Colorado Springs and proud moment for CSCC to be featured.

Hint: In the video, CSCC are featured from 15:13 to 18:13
