Sporting Life

Welcome back to the podcast celebrating growing up in the 1970’s and the TV we enjoyed in our childhoods.

Today I’m joined by our listener Ross from Kingston to talk about sport on TV in the 1970’s. Ross is a Sports Media Executive, so ideally placed to compare our sporting memories of the 1970’s to the immersive and comprehensive coverage we enjoy today. Spoiler alert: it wasn’t like that in the 70’s!

We look at football and remember what a big deal FA Cup Final day was with the whole TV day given over to the game and, via memories of Belle and SebastianChampion the Wonder Horse and White Horses, we look at how we enjoyed rugby and cricket in the 1970’s. We also remember the exploits of Alberto Juantorena and Franz Klammer at the Summer and Winter Olympics of 1976.
