Extraordinary stuff.

Bog roll in shot about 1 minute in.

A wee laddie on the pitch.

Those glasses.

As you say Davy, extraordinary. Now THAT was a Hampden roar.

Love the presenter at the end saying with all the enthusiasm of a man whose tea is getting cold 'Well that'll keep people talking for a day or two...' Life without pundits, eh? How did we ever cope?

Brilliant stuff! Here's a pre-match preview .

And the rest of that night's TV. The clip was from the BBC but these listings don't show BBC Scotland. I think Sportsreel replaced 'Twenty-four hours' Note that the poor sods in the Border and Grampian areas had to put up with current affairs programmes rather than the Scotsport special.

What terrible dilemmas we faced in those days. 'Z-Cars' or 'The Avengers' and no videos!

As you point out in your book (which I've bought and very much enjoyed) football sold itself short on TV in those days, considering that a big match could get 40% of the population watching (2million in Scotland, 20 million in England). Far cry from today when the big clubs such as Man U earn far more from TV (from much smaller audiences) than they do from people paying at the gate - the big clubs could manage quite well financially playing behind closed doors.
