BBC Documentary - The Lost Voice of Football Can't Post or Reply Privately

BBC Radio documentary on Arthur James "Jimmy" Jewell - the man who refereed an FA Cup final, managed Norwich City, and became the BBC's first regular television football commentator.

It was his sudden death in 1952 that saw his No. 2, Kenneth Wolstenholme, promoted into the main slot.

Haven't listened yet so can't offer any critique. It's available for just over three weeks



Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

Thanks for that, fascinating life story.

Loads of interesting stories. I particularly liked the one about when during his days as a footballer he fancied himself being able to play as a centre forward so persuaded the No 9 to swap roles. Unfortunately, the team captain hadn't been consulted and a row ensued which ended with the captain ordering Jewell off the field and the team playing a man short.

And his refereeing seems to have been based on it being a man's game, meaning he seems, despite overseeing many games at the top level, only to have sent off two players during his career.

A very good radio programme, maybe, given the great variety of events he was involved in, including wartime service in the two world wars and officiating at the Berlin Olympics, they could have produced a version for TV.
