In 1936 the first flickering electronic TV images of a match between Arsenal and Everton were relayed to a Radio Exhibition in London. It was the start of a remarkable journey that has seen football on television deliver some of the small screen’s most unforgettable moments to some of its largest audiences.  Great games, great players, and great goals caught on cameras that have changed from black and white to colour and from 2D to 3D. Brian Barwick, author of ‘Are You Watching the Match Tonight?’ and Joe Moran, author of ‘Armchair Nation’ discuss this broadcasting phenomenon.
