Yes, that would be an interesting one. Teams under those names played against each other in the Football League in 1928-30 but it might be difficult to find any ex-players who remember those matches.

Looking at the ties, theres some tasty looking derbies but I think the Beeb will not want to stream a game thats already behind closed doors, that would narrow down the selection to this

Stafford Rangers v Skelmersdale United
Banbury United v Bury Town
South Shields v FC Halifax Town
Ilkeston Town v Hartlepool United

FC United of Manchester v Guiseley
Canvey Island v Cray Wanderers
Maldon & Tiptree v Haringey Borough
Leiston v Barnet
Sholing v Torquay United

Bishops Stortford v St Albans City

basically any tie thats not got a Step 1 or 2 club at home, those in red would be those I think have the best chance of selection.

If it were up to me, Ilkeston v Hartlepool would be a very interesting pick

There seems to be a slight doubt on the Leiston v Barnet game taking place as the Bees are awaiting the results of further tests for Covid. The home game with Hartlepool was cancelled on Saturday but with what is at stake you would expect them to rather travel with a scratch squad than have to withdraw from the competition.

Looking forward to them mentioning the year the club was formed.. 1945, 2010 or 2017.

BT Sport are showing Bishop's Stortford v St Albans City on Monday 26th October (19:45)

Yes, have any club taking part in this year's competition been (re)formed more times ?

It's going to be interesting to see if the BBC use Artificial Intelligence (AI) ball-tracking cameras for these single-camera matches instead of a real person, bearing this in mind (up in Scotland) from last weekend... https://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/robot-camera-bald-linesman-scotland-22928623

From that article.... '
Telly chiefs believe the device – which was programmed to follow the match ball - could be the future of sports broadcasting.
A spokesman for the Scottish Professional Football League – which is trialling the robots to film action to locked down fans - said: “We are aware of a few brief instances of wandering cameras and have been assured by Pixellot that they are working to fix it.”

Inspired choices by BT to show the games at Marine and Canvey - they usually like to have a league team in danger of a giant-killing. Good to give some money to the lowest teams still in the competition !

It will be interesting to see how they are going to fit in the cameras at Marine. It will be impossible to give the camera an elevated view unless they hire one of the back gardens in Rossett Road.

Marine, Clyde. Munich 1860.
Everton V Arsenal Women's FA Cup semi final was shown live on BBC Red Button in 2018 from Marine Travel Arena so it can be done. You can see footage here

I think equally worth noting is they picked no ties which are only between Football League teams

Good point. I wonder if it's related to the fact that EFL clubs who aren't televised live can still stream FA Cup games on ifollow, therefore still generating some income, whereas non league teams don't have that option.

£37,500 TV money for each club in the live games.

I think most if not all the National League (top division) clubs are streaming their league and cup games. Both of Yeovil's cup matches were streamed and so far all of there league games have been as well. Yeovil are charging £10 a match or trade in your season ticket for 'free' passes.
