BBC broadcast documentary on historic ’84 Grand Slam


BBC Scotland will be broadcasting a half hour documentary on Scotland’s 1984 pulsating Grand Slam success, with footage of the memorable Championship moments and interviews with the players who made them.

Grand Slam ‘84, on air at 10pm tomorrow night (Wednesday 29 January) on BBC 2 Scotland, will be narrated by John Beattie, who featured as a member of the winning squad.

The programme will tell the tantalising tale of how the squad came to Championship glory, winning the Grand Slam for the first time in 59 years, from the scintillating winner takes all match-up against France in the final match of the tournament, to taking the scalp of the Auld Enemy on the 100th meeting of the teams.
