A Very Special Day - Link to Excerpts: HERE
July 31st 1966 - England won the World Cup at Wembley!
July 31st 2016 - a few intrepid presenters, actors and musicians relive the whole afternoon LIVE on BBC Radio and Red Button.
Standing with the Jules Rimet Trophy - this is the real thing!
The Special Pass - my personal collection of these from Events I have been involved in is now quite extensive - as you can imagine!
The man who was Number 1 in the Charts on that day in 1966 with Out Of Time - Chris Farlowe - sang the song live with us. Here I am with one of our gorgeous Presenters, Louise Minchin, and the man himself. An Interval Selfie!
Sometimes you just have to slum it with Dressing Room allocation!
Another quick Selfie just before we started!
