Terriers on TV

NORTHERN League football club Bedlington Terriers will feature in a BBC documentary to be broadcast this Sunday.

The 30-minute show focuses on how one of the richest men in the United States, Bob Rich, took a shine to the non league side when he traced his ancestors back to the Northumberland town.

‘Mr Rich and the Terriers’ is on BBC One on Sunday, October 2, at 10.55pm, and takes a look at how the US billionaire gave the club his backing as well as providing them with a trip of a lifetime to Buffalo as part of a pre-season tour.

The documentary will see the club’s players and officials on their trip, sampling the lifestyle of Bob Rich as they see how he runs his baseball clubs, as well being introduced to his business empire and his luxury home.
