Lions Live celebrates Millwall's 59 game unbeaten home run

In the year that England hoisted the World Cup and colour TV was first broadcast to the nation's living rooms, a Division Two football club were making the headlines in their own little corner of London.

In 1966, Millwall FC were in indomitable form on their home turf and would go on to set a record of 59 unbeaten home games.

The names of players that appeared during that momentous run, trip off the tongues of Millwall fans like old catchphrases, evoking memories of great games, great performances and great goals.

And two of those players will be joining the Lions Live team tonight. Billy Neil and Barry Rowan will be holding court in the studio to regale us with memories of those halcyon days half a century ago.

Also contributing to the nostalgia-fest and adding to the roll-call of Lions legends, via the telephone, will be Tommy Wilson and George Jacks.

In the second half of tonight's programme, former Millwall Chairman Jeff Burnige will re-living and sharing his own memories of that time, as a fresh-faced young supporter cheering on his heroes from the stands.

In keeping with this evening's theme, the prize for this weeks competition will be a slate bearing a picture of one those great names Harry Cripps. So for all collectors of Millwall memorabilia out there, now's your chance.

All of tonight's guests will be open to questions, so have your phones at the ready.
