Series 3, Episode 1 - Football
In the opening episode of the series, Tudur explores our love of football - from giant stadiums to kickabouts in the park.
Nantlle Vale Football Club provides a star-studded clip from the past as the local team take on a team of stars, including England World Cup winning squad members Bobby Charlton and Gordon Banks. In front of a crowd of 1,500 at Maes Dulyn, the big names show off their talent, with Charlton penetrating the defence time and again and Banks making a number of fine saves.
Other archive clips include a look at the Cardiff Open table football tournament between 40 of the world's finest players, a game of 'Wheelaball' (Stock car racing mixed with football) in Rhyl, and a report about a local team's practice pitch which has been dug up to put in an oil pipeline.
