Programme on tonight on BBC Scotland at 1925 (friday 17th May) about Bill Shankly, his brother might get a mention so thought I'd flag it for anyone interested.

If 'our' Shanks gets a mention, even if it's a BBC Scotland produced documentary, it'll either be the Glenbuck Cherrypickers team photo, or the usual "elder brother Bob also managed Scottish clubs Dundee, Hibernian". Sadly he tends to be very much overlooked in these tribute programmes. I don't even think I've heard anyone mention that Bill won the Div.2 title with Liverpool the same season that Bob won the Scottish Div.1 title.

Anyway....won't you be watching the Tangy neighbours? :o

Thanks to the wonders of Betamax I can record the Shankly programme. :P

I find it strange that one of the most famous managers in the history of football is Bill Shankly, and his brother took Dundee to the semi-finals of the European Cup.
