Panorama - Hillsborough, how they buried the truth

Hillsborough remembrance and related information

Hi all,

Been off the board for a while due to connectivity issues and nothing jumped out at me that the documentary on BBC1 was discussed on here, so I thought I'd trigger something (no doubt I am not looking further than my nose)

For those who haven't seen it, it's on the iplayer in case you're interested.

I was 14 when it happened and I was out doing my afternoon paper round when the news started coming through on the radio. I am not from Liverpool and although I remember obviously the severity of the situation, I had a very strange experience watching this all last night after I Sky +'d it. I don't mean to belittle any of the obvious things that come out of such an event, but for me it was eye opening how differently I view the same events unfolding through older eyes and a different perspective almost as if the magnitude of the event and the being able to put myself in that situation overwhelmed me way more than initially when I think you're at an age where you're generally more accepting of everything that comes your way.

Anyhow, as mentioned, I am not a scouser, but I have been a fan since about the age of 3 when a team wearing my favourite colour seemed to be on the TV every other day winning games with ease which led me to fall in love with the club. I just wanted to reach out and let those know on here who are directly or indirectly connected to the events in Hillsborough that I felt genuine connection to you all last night and it will most likely stay with me forever.

In addition to that, I wanted to say that there's often a lot of talk here about remote fans versus those that hit the terraces each week. I know you can't compare, but at the same time that we're not all in the Chelski plastic fan vein.

Must be my age and I am turning into a soppy old sod as I had tears in my eyes and goose bumps whilst watching Carra coming on the pitch on Sunday, then when he left and during his interviews after.

Or additionally for those out of the UK, consider a smartdns subscription with Overplay ( Few a couple of quid a month, you replace your standard DNS servers with their DNS servers and they address most GEOIP issues that block access to content in different areas. There's a special section for Netflix users too where you can choose your locale......very handy :)
