How fantastic is this photo, taken in a drab, wood-panelled dressing room in Manchester in September 1975 captures an extraordinary moment in football history.

A group of players completely at ease, humble almost, before turning out for a testimonial match at Manchester City’s home ground Maine Road.

But these are no ordinary players. These are the Manchester United heroes who won the European Cup by beating Benfica 4-1 at Wembley on a balmy night in May 1968.

READY, STEADY, GO!

Ready Steady Go! went out every Friday night with the slogan ‘The weekend starts here!’

It dispensed with scenery, costumes, choreography and make-up, preferring to focus on the music provided by the leading bands of the time and the audience’s reaction to them.

The Rediffusion studio was certainly cramped. There was no room to hide cameras, so they became a part of the action. They were large cameras too, with rotating lens turrets rather than zooms.
