The Pittodrie Story on RedTV

Recommended Posts



Pittodrie has long been the spiritual home of the Red Army.


More than a century has passed since the first ball was kicked in anger, and since then, the old place has hosted memorable cup ties, great European nights, seen the championship flag hoisted, been home to some of Scotland's finest foootballers and been the proving ground for the greatest manager in the history of the British game.


But time waits for no man - nor stadium - and Pittodrie is soon to enter into history and folklore as Aberdeen FC moves to pastures new.


But before we go, we've committed the story of the grand old ground to film in a documentary for RedTV viewers.


RedWeb have teamed up with the Robert Gordon University's Design for Digital Media course to produce 'The Pittodrie Story', documenting the history of Aberdeen FC's stadium from it's origins through to the current day.


Presented by BBC Scotland's Liam McLeod, the 90 minutes includes all the legendary moments that have defined the stadium. From the early days, to the Gothenburg Greats and on to exclusive behind the scenes access from the present day,


Featuring contributions from broadcaster Richard Gordon, AFC Historian Kevin Stirling, manager Craig Brown amongst others, 'The Pittodrie Story' is a nostalgic look back at the events and occasions that have contributed to the history of the club.


written and produced by Christopher Anderson.

Terrific videos. Just watched them all. Hopefully they release it on DVD once we've played the final matches for a complete history of Pittodrie.


A lot of info I hadn't heard before about the locations of the original 3 clubs, what it was used for in the war and proposed development of the Merkie
