So the BBC’s show from last night wasn’t terrible.
But it wasn’t really up to much either.
Yeah, it was pretty poor … but that’s more about the lack of ambition it showed than anything else, although there was definitely a bit of Ibrox feel-good injected into it.
A half-decent video editor could have done a more thorough job and given Celtic’s storming campaign a proper examination.
This felt like something stitched together in a hurry just to fill a Friday night slot.
It was not the pro-Ibrox ham job some suggested, but it wasn’t what Celtic fans deserved.
Entitled “How The League Was Won”, it was actually a pretty naff run through each month of the campaign.
It had about as much depth as a kid’s paddling pool.
I think the anger from those people who contacted me last night was because this was absolutely not what they expected; they thought it would be similar to the pro-Ibrox love-in which their fans got last season … it came nowhere near that.
It was an overview, not centred on Celtic at all.
There is a great documentary to be made about the season just passed, focussing on Ange, focussing on his signings, talking to Celtic people in the media and elsewhere … but that was not it last night.
It was a lazy production, in my view, and one that did veer into efforts to boost the morale of Ibrox with references to Europe and the Scottish Cup.
I mean where’s the need to show the Scottish Cup Final at all, far less in the segment near the end before the league decider?
Which got two seconds by the way.
Just think; if they’d missed out references to the Scottish Cup, the League Cup and Europe they might even have found time to talk properly about Giakoumakis, show the Hearts game which left us needing a point, discuss the skills and merits of Abada and Jota and praise our defence.
But yeah, there’s a certain element at the BBC which cannot help itself but to inject a little Ibrox joy into things, even when in terms of the league there was none to be had.
So it wasn’t a hatchet job.
It wasn’t pro anyone, although it did focus on stuff that has no bearing on the title race whatsoever.
But it wasn’t worth a second viewing.
It was a pretty sub-par BBC Scotland production.
I’d give it a solid C. For crap.
