Video Of The Week: Match Of The 70s – 1970/71

“This week’s video of the week is the first episode of ‘Match Of The Seventies’, the BBC series that filled summers of the 1990s with nostalgia for the football of the past, and this episode focusses on Arsenal’s double season – 1970/71. It provides a reasonably good primer on the subject of English football in the 1970s. Host Dennis Waterman struggles to avoid stating the bleeding obvious at times, but unfettered access to the BBC’s massive football archive and the fact that length of each episode of the programme allowed the producers to touch upon areas of 1970s football that slightly less well remembered rescue it from the trash bin. This episode is the first of the series, and we’ll be putting the rest of them up if there is sufficient interest.” (twohundredpercent)
