The ITV Sport website seems to have had a bit of a facelift, and with it a move to proper Flash video. That’s good news for us, for a couple of reasons. One, the embedded video player they used to use just resulted in us getting a Directshow error. But the more interesting Two is: they’re using it for some pretty interesting things. Like doing something with their archive, instead of just stomping around YouTube insisting archive clips from the network are removed.
It’s the Yorkshire Television logo. What could be behind it, we wonder.
Oh hells yeah. The full – that’s FULL – edition of Calendar from 1974 where Brian Clough tussled with Don Revie just after his dismissal from Leeds United. All 26 minutes and four seconds of it.
This is what we want, and no we don’t mind having a couple of (modern-day) adverts beforehand, as these things do need to be paid for. It’s not that often people use the word ‘excellent’ in the same sentence as the words ‘ITV’ and ‘Sport’, but in this case doing so is wholly appropriate. More online archivery if you please, Mr Grade. Especially when it comes to local news programmes.See the full show here: http://www.itv.com/Sport/Football/News/Generalnews/ManualStories/Cloughclips/default.html
