Film ID: NEFA 21857 Video of TODAY AT SIX: MIDDLESBROUGH FOOTBALL SONG SUNG BY SCHOOL CHOIR 1975 Visitor TabsDescription Entertaining news item of boys’ school choir singing a Middlesbrough Football Club song broadcast on Tyne Tees TV Today at Six news on 19 February 1975. Group portrait of schoolboys, some with very serious expressions, assembled in a classroom singing a (repetitive) Middlesbrough FC song celebrating the football club. To finish off, they shout the catch lines ‘It’s a good club. It’s a great club!’ Context Pitch perfect in Middlesbrough A schoolboy choir sing the praises of Middlesbrough Football Club. Under the management of Jackie Charlton, 1974 heralded a return to the First Division for a once struggling Middlesbrough Football Club. By the time Tyne Tees Television captured this school choir singing the club’s praises, the ‘Boro’, as they are locally known, were well on the way to securing 7th place in the 1974-75 season. Little is known about the school or pupils featured, but theirs (or at least their teacher’s) affection for the team is infectious.
