Rovers return for BBC documentary
The sport of Rugby League gets another run out on BBC1 Yorkshire next Monday November 22 (7.30pm) as part of the Inside Out regional documentary series.
Presented by Radio 5Live’s George Riley, the half hour programme will revisit “The Game That Got Away” which profiled the state of Rugby League in 1969 and the on and off-field fortunes of Featherstone Rovers.
The original producer Roger Mills is interviewed along with many of those involved in the original broadcast including Ken Greatorex, Mal Dixon and Jimmy Thompson.
“The Game That Got Away” was shown on BBC4 earlier this year and there will be a link to view this classic Rugby League documentary online on the Inside Out webpage after the broadcast
