Exclusive Members Event - 1979 Gillette Cup Final Watchalong
Somerset County Cricket club are delighted to invite Members to an exclusive online programme as part of a series of events this winter.
Using recently obtained footage straight from the BBC archive, Somerset Members are invited to join us on Tuesday 17th November at 7pm to watch through one of the most important days in the Club’s history.
The show will last for roughly one hour and include a previously unseen digitised version of the 30 minute BBC highlights package that aired on that famous day. From the introductions by BBC presenter Peter West to Brian Rose’s post match interview, it offers a fascinating insight into the match and cricket broadcasting of the era.
Furthermore, popular local journalist Richard Walsh will be joined by Club legends Brian Rose and Vic Marks to “commentate” as the action unfolds on screen.
