Hillsborough coverage on .tv and lfc tv - From 12 tonight

Hillsborough remembrance and related information

Postby Igor Zidane » Thu Apr 14, 2011 5:15 pm


As we remember those who lost their lives at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final, from midnight tonight we'll be publishing 96 responses to the question: 'What does Hillsborough mean to you?'

It's a question guaranteed to generate the full range of thoughts, emotions and feelings and as we reflect on Britain's worst sporting disaster 22 years on, we've asked a number of different people from supporters to celebrities, poets to musicians and senior club staff to players to put into words exactly what Hillsborough means to them.

This five-part feature, featuring contributions from Margaret Aspinall, Pat Joynes, Kenny Dalglish, Steven Gerrard, John Henry, Tom Werner, Ian Ayre, Peter Hooton, Tony Barrett and Brian Reade amongst others, will be published online on Liverpoolfc.tv at midnight tonight as we remember those who lost their lives supporting the team they love.

We'll also publish a moving account of Hillsborough through the eyes of a Nottingham Forest fan as she watched the tragedy unfold from the other end of the stadium on that fateful afternoon.

The passing of the years has done nothing to lessen the pain felt by the Hillsborough families and survivors, many of whom will be joined by thousands of fellow supporters inside Anfield on Friday afternoon for the annual Memorial Service.

As always, if you can't be at Anfield then the service will be streamed live online to all supporters - not just those subscribed to our LFC TV Online service.

Our online simulcast of LFC TV will be free to view for the duration of April 15.

The Memorial Service will also be shown live on LFC TV - the club's dedicated channel available free of charge on both SKY channel 434 and Virgin channel 544. Our coverage direct from Anfield will begin at 2.45pm and will include a specially commissioned poem recited by local playright Dave Kirby.

All day on LFC TV the channel will be commercial free and a schedule of Hillsborough related programming will be shown.

If you're at work and can't watch the service then it will be repeated in full on LFC TV from 9.15pm and be available to watch on demand on LFC TV Online.

And later in the day a podcast of the service will be freely available to download online from iTunes.

April 15 is always the saddest day of the year for Liverpool fans all over the world and, as always, the thoughts of everybody at Liverpool Football Club will be with those who lost loved ones 22 years ago.
