BBC radio compiles commentary archive

BBC Radio 5 live and the corporations Local Radio stations have launched an appeal for listeners to help pick football commentary highlights to feature in a new exhibition.

An archive of hundreds of the most memorable clips will be part of a display at the National Football Museum in Manchester which opens later this year.

The exhibit will include memorable commentary clips from every Premier and Football League team, along with highlights from the England national team. People are being encouraged to nominate their favourite commentary moments for their club via the BBC website.

Radio 5 live Deputy Controller Jonathan Wall said: “This is a huge partnership between 5 live and BBC Local Radio with a chance for football supporters to help us select the favourite clips. Memories will be evoked along the way and it will result in a treasure trove of radio commentary for visitors to the museum to cherish.”

National Football Museum Deputy Director David Pearson said: “We are delighted to be working with BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Local Radio to bring together such an astounding collection of clips, which are so integral to football supporters’ memories and experiences of football history. It’s such an impressive project to undertake and will feature some of the greatest names in football commentary. We would very much like to thank the BBC for their help and assistance in compiling this fascinating collection for our visitors.

The ‘BBC Radio Football Commentary Collection’ will feature in a special preview radio show on 5 live next month when Colin Murray broadcasts from the museum ahead of its opening in July. The museum has relocated from its old home in Preston to a new permanent base in Manchester.
