BBC Match of The Seventies 1971-72 Season
Series showing classic footballing action from the 1970's intercut with music from the time. The 1971-2 season including the domination of the game by managers Brian Clough at Derby County and Malcolm Allison at Manchester United. Violence on the pitch was growong; George Best pulled out of the Northern Ireland team after an IRA death threat and went to Spain where he announced his retirement.
Between 1995 and 1999, the BBC broadcast Match of the Seventies (1995-96), Match of the Eighties (1997) and Match of the Nineties (1999). Each series acted as a chronological review of seasons through each decade, presented in a slightly off-beat style, and relied heavily on footage originally included in Match of the Day broadcasts. Presenters included Dennis Waterman, Danny Baker, Mark Radcliffe and Marc Riley
