TICKETS are available to relive the week that legendary broadcaster David Frost spent at Darlington 40 years ago.
Frost, who died earlier this year, made a programme about a week in the life of Quakers in 1973 when they were at the bottom of the Football League.
On October 17, this rarely seen hour-long programme will be shown in the town's Dolphin Centre, to raise money for the football club.
Tickets cost £2.50 and can be paid for on the night, but as space is limited they need to be booked by calling 01325-388406.
The screening will start at 8pm, and is being arranged by The Northern Echo in conjunction with the Dolphin Centre.
In the film, Frost is seen playing at Feethams. He interviews the Quakers boss and chairman, and there are shots of the crowd around the ground. Frost also meets players in their homes in Newton Aycliffe, and he has a chat with fans in the ASE Club.
The film is a fascinating look at both the club and the town 40 years ago, and is being screened following interest after an article about it in the Echo's Weekend Memories.
Meanwhile, Ray Simpson, will be signing copies of his new book In The Dying Seconds on Saturday from 11-12pm at the club shop in the Darlington covered market.
Quakers have two games in three days this weekend, first against Prescot Cables on Saturday at Heritage Park before travelling to Curzon Ashton on Monday evening.
Curzon were the season's early pacesetters before Darlington dethroned them with last week's 7-0 win against Ossett Albion.
