Charlton content in fanzine documentary

A 40 minute documentary on YouTube tells the story of the fanzine movement in English football. It sets the context of the 1980s well, pointing to links with similar magazines on the music scene and the bad treatment of fans at that time who were all stereotyped as hooligans: Watch it here

Fanzines are now a dying means of communication. The West Ham fanzine, featured in this documentary, came to end with the move to the London Stadium which is surrounded by private land.

We still have Voice of the Valley and Rick Everitt features in this documentary with scenes shot at The Valley with an anti-Roland emphasis. We also get a peep inside the VOTV offices in Ramsgate.
