We’re up to the fourth of our five episodes of the 1985 BBC Scotland documentary series, “Only a Game? The Story of Scottish Football”, this evening, and tonight’s episode is on the subject of “The Game” itself. This episode shines, possibly more than any other in the series on the strength of its archive footage. It shows brief highlights of the tense, last day of the season title win for Kilmarnock in 1965, when they needed to beat Hearts by two goals in order to become the Scottish champions, Hibernian beating Celtic to win the Scottish League Cup and even some of the goals from Stirling Albion’s remarkable 20-0 against the amateurs of Selkirk in the 1984/85 Scottish Cup. As ever, our eternal thanks go to the original uploader.
