ITV's Big Match DVD is a Nostalgic Gift

The Big Match: The Best From The Studio

In an age when football fans regularly debate the merits of goal line technology, video referees, players wages, and European super leagues, modern football often seems a million miles away from the era in which ITV’s The Big Match screened live football to millions in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Now set for release on DVD, The Big Match: The Best From the Studio, compiles the highlights from the long running football magazine show fronted by Brian Moore.

Packed with big hair, big ‘tashes, but not so big shorts, The Big Match: The Best From the Studio, is a nostalgic trip down memory lane, revisiting an era in which families across the land would huddle around the TV every weekend to watch live football and banter beamed into their living rooms.

Pick a spot in front of the telly for an afternoon of entertainment delivered with the charm, wit and style oozed by Brian Moore and Jimmy Hill as they are joined by Jim Rosenthal and the straight talking Brian Clough. Fans will enjoy a nostalgic trip down memory lane, revisiting the best studio action and reliving the top goals from the era.

In a release packed with previously unreleased content, particular highlights include a beard sporting, pipe smoking Jimmy Hill airing his forthright views on the laws of the game, as well as a chance to see him on linesman duty when the first choice official was injured. Fans who grew up watching The Big Match will remember features such as Viewers Letters, Where are They Now, Jim Rosenthal’s News Desk, and with guest appearances from Eric Morecambe, Mohammed Ali and more, the DVD is a real treat for football fans in need of a break from the fast pace of the modern game.
