Banks of England, Tuesday, 22.00, ITV4

We’re sadly now getting to the stage where the Boys of 66 are starting to die off, and one of the saddest passings has been that of Gordon Banks, renowned by all and sundry as one of the nicest men in football. It’s an interesting story, too, his career coming to a tragic and abrupt end when he was partially blinded in a car crash, but he stayed in the game until just before his death as a member of the mysterious pools panel. This should be a nice tribute, the fact he spent most of his career playing for Midlands clubs giving us the added bonus of lots of Hugh Johns commentaries.
