Video Of The Week: The Saturday Men (West Bromwich Albion 1962)

“This week’s Video Of The Week goes all the way back to 1962, and a short film called ‘The Saturday Men’. Produced as part of a shot series of films sponsored by the Ford Motor Company called ‘Look At Britain’, ‘The Saturday Men’ spends a week following West Bromwich Albion around. It follows them to training, the inner workings of the boardroom (to the extent to which the inhabitants of said room were going to be honest when there were cameras around), takes the time to meet a former player who is about to embark on a new career as a salesman and even stops in on a pre-match team talk by the club’s then manager, Archie McAuley.” (twohundredpercent)
