THE ALL BLACK XII - NEW BBC DOCUMENTARY
Earlier this year I wrote about the extraordinary match that took place in May 1979 at West Bromwich Albion's ground when an all black team played an all white team. Now there is to be a TV documentary made about the game. The former Albion club photographer Laurie Rampling posted these pictures on Facebook earlier. Baggies fan Adrian Chiles will present the documentary which will be shown on BBC TV. Laurie Cunningham played in the match which took place a month before he moved to Real Madrid for close to £1 million.
