“Beyond the touchline, there is nothing.” With respect to Jacques Derrida, we disagree.
Beyond the Touchline is a football podcast that’s not actually about football. Every episode, David Hartrick, Seb Patrick and Denis Hurley will look at a different aspect of football culture – the movies, TV, books, comics, games, toys and other paraphernalia and ephemera that tell the stories of the game we love.
In May 1994, BBC2 devoted an entire evening of programming to the newly-growing cultural phenomenon of modern football – with newly-made documentaries, archive-dredging clips, and classic episodes blended together. To say this was Right Up The Street of all three members of this podcast team in their wide-eyed youth is something of an understatement – so, 25 years on, Dave, Denis and Seb have rewatched the entire thing and spent a solid couple of hours talking about it.
